Playful new renderings show St. Luke’s Children’s Pavilion as final beam hoisted

Crews will put the last beam on top of the four story Children’s Pavilion at St. Luke’s Children’s Hospital this Wednesday.

Employees signed the 21-foot beam nicknamed “Jenny” in recent months with their names, hearts and a few short messages. It will be hoisted into place during a ceremony as construction shifts to finishing the interior and exterior finishes.

The health system released new renderings of the project which show updated detailing on the skybridge over Avenue B that will connect the new structure to the existing hospital building.

The bridge now features a wavy frosted-glass pattern, while new art installations include stylized trees and a sculpture of a bear on the building’s roof and an elk near the front entrance.

St. Luke’s says the tower crane at the project is set to come down later this month – and the bridge is expected to be hoisted into place later this year.

The 100,000 square foot building is expected to cost $42 million to complete, including $22 million in donations. It is on track to open in the summer of 2019.
