After eight months of construction, the concrete frame of Kaiser Permamente's new outpatient facility is now complete in Baldwin Hills.

The $90-million project is rising from a roughly 8.6-acre site at the intersection of Marlton Avenue and Santa Rosalia Drive that formerly housed a shopping center.  At completion, the four-story building will offer more than 100,000 square feet of space dedicated to diagnositic imaging, family medicine, health education, gynecology, opthamology, optometry, pedatrics, medical labs and a pharmacy.

With the intention of attaining LEED Gold Certification, architecture firm HOK has incorporated environmentally-friendly features into the design of the project, including a photovoltaic roof canopy.

The development will also create approximately 2.5 acres of green space in the form of a waling path that cuts across the property.

Completion is expected in 2017.

Kaiser's new facility is among several projects springing up near the future Crenshaw/LAX Line station at Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard, highlighted by the proposed redevelopment of the Baldwin HIlls Crenshaw Plaza shopping mall.
