The Community Hospital of the Monterey Bay’s Ryan Ranch Outpatient Campus went through a use permit/planning submittal for the construction of an additional medical office building approximately 60,000 square feet in size. This building would be the third building to the medical campus.
Site and landscape design goals included efficient site circulation; adding a pedestrian connection to an existing walking path and vehicular circulation which included an entry drop off, integration with the existing parking lot, and development of fire truck access. A modern entry plaza was designed which matched existing campus materials and features.
Challenges included preservation of significant trees due to site being a Coast Live Oak forest and adhering to the City of Monterey’s new green building requirements. This project was not realized.
