Hosted Event  |  Community Forum on the Hospital Reuse Design/Development Competition for the old Millard Fillmore Gates Circle Hospital

Hosted by Kaleida Health

Wednesday, June 20, 2012, 5:30–7:30 pm

Peter and Elizabeth C. Tower Auditorium  

Kaleida Health will host a community forum on the Hospital Reuse Design/Development Competition for the old Millard Fillmore Gates Circle Hospital on Wednesday, June 20 at the Burchfield Penney Art Center from 5:30-7:30 pm.

The event will include a presentation and exhibits from the two competitors who have submitted qualified proposals for the Gates Circle site.

Kaleida Health has committed to a transparent re-use process for the hospital. The goal of the re-use process is to find a suitable developer who is interested in the property, or help determine other future possibilities for the site.

In 2011, Kaleida Health engaged the internationally renowned Urban Land Institute (ULI) and the University at Buffalo’s Urban Design Project to study the re-use concept. Earlier this year, Kaleida Health released an official RFP for a Hospital Reuse Design/Development Competition to the local and national development community.

The competition is aimed at getting the best ideas and the most capable developers to do something great with Millard Fillmore Gates Circle Hospital -- great for the neighborhood and city, great for the developer, and great for Kaleida Health.

Committed to an open process, a project advisory committee led by former Kaleida Health Board Chair Ted Walsh has been working to promote communication between the community and the hospital re-use process. The committee includes neighbors, block club leaders, local business leaders, planners, community activists and other interested parties.
