Vanderbilt University Construction Projects

19 posts in this topic

It seems that all parts of Vanderbilt University are continually active with all sorts of new construction projects, additions, renovations, etc.

I have read that many things are underway and planned, especially at VU Medical Center.

Since Vanderbilt is so central to Nashville's economy, and among the largest employers in TN, might it be possible to summarize and track the various constuction projects taking place across the campus and Medical Center?

I apologize in advance if this is being covered elsewhere.

I dont think it is up to date as I know they have announced an addition to the Children's Hospital due to poss. start at the end of this year. They are also very mum about a new Women's Hosp. There are some other projects coming from what I have heard but no news releases as of yet.

Also, I did not see the third patient tower in that list. Isn't that already under construction, along with an enlarged ER?

Here is a shot of the new patient tower at Vandy. Most of you guys probably didn't even know about this one. It is an 11 story addition to match surrounding buildings.

Still waiting on the 8 story Children's Hospital addition to start in December and a new Women's hospital to start who knows when. The Women's Hospital is one that Vandy is keeping mum about about, but I have heard the rumor from multiple people that work at Vandy.

This is for the new addition to the Children's Hospital. I think you will see cranes up at Vandy for a long time.

vandy is a world class medical center that continues to grow and expand, and will for some time. lots of money, means lots of patients from all over the world for world class procedures means more expansion and development for the area. and it spurs growth in other areas too... condos, retail, office.... etc..

^^^ Yes, I fully agree. Nashville is lucky to have a medical campus and SEC school such as this. It definitely defines a part of Nashville. Now just keep the good football, except last weekend against Miss. St., rolling!

Wow, Vanderbilt's growth is amazing. It is like a city within a city within a city (Nashville-Midtown/West End-Vanderbilt). It is buying the land for the Children's Hospital expansion where the KFC is and another piece where Mapco is.

Vanderbilt Hospital buys land for expansion

edit: Rendering also

Oh man, thank goodness. KFC and Mapco are such eyesores, and the KFC parking lot was way too big!

The Chancellor's letter from yesterday says:

All major construction projects that were not too far along to stop have been put on hold for the next two years. Modest capital projects and repairs that are necessary for safety and the maintenance of current facilities will continue.

This means that the Children's Hosp. expansion will now be put on hold. I also know that the Centennial Hosp. expansion is on hold as well. For how long, I dont know.

Apparently... the new Children's Way parking garage was already "too far along to stop." Or maybe things are looking up again..

The $23 million Children's Way Garage will soon begin rising at Vanderbilt University. R.C. Mathews Contractor pulled permits recently for the structure, which will feature 11 levels of parking, eight of them underground. The garage is set to open in September of 2010.

just a shot in the dark but, wouldn't Vanderbilt Univ. and Vanderbilt Hospital be separate entities?
