After receiving state approval to move forward with its new Winship at Midtown tower last month, Emory University Hospital Midtown wasted no time getting started on the project.

Emory officials broke ground Tuesday on the new 17-story facility, which will replace a Linden Avenue parking lot that fronts Peachtree Street.

Winship at Midtown aims to bring together all the doctors, staff, and services necessary for cancer patients.

Inside the 455,000-square-foot building, services and facilities will include 64 inpatient beds, 26 observation beds, six shared operating rooms, a radiation oncology facility, and diagnostic imaging facilities, plus a multi-story parking deck, officials announced Tuesday.

Designed in collaboration with Skidmore, Owings & Merrill, a New York-based architecture and structural engineering firm, and Atlanta architecture partner May Architecture + Interiors, the new tower sports a $469 million price tag.

Nearly half of that amount—$200 million—comes courtesy of a gift from the Robert W. Woodruff Foundation, which extended $400 million to Emory University in 2018.

As part of the building’s design, the Winship tower will seek LEED® Silver certification, with the goal of expending almost 40 percent less energy annually than the average hospital in Atlanta, per Emory officials.

Plans also call for a pedestrian bridge to connect the new Winship tower to Emory University Hospital Midtown across the street.

The project is targeted for completion in late 2022, with an opening to patient care in spring 2023.

Below is a more in-depth look at what to expect at the forthcoming Winship at Midtown. First, the interiors:
