The Center for Cancer and Blood Disorders

800 W. Magnolia Ave. - 2005

 

This medical building was the first building completed in the Magnolia Green project.  Magnolia Green is a mixed use project located between W. Magnolia Avenue, Lipscomb Street, W. Rosedale Street, and Hemphill Street.  The project is a combination of existing and new buildings, a central "green" space, and will mix office, residential, and retail uses.  Although it is addressed on W. Magnolia, the building actually faces into the "Green", a common landscaped open area.  This two story building features red brick and several decorative elements marking the entries.  At the corner of Lipscomb and Rosedale, the entry is noted by an octagonal, yellow brick, element that helps to break up the long facade on Magnolia Avenue.  The building is "L" shaped and the main entry is oriented toward the central green space and is noted by a two story, curving glass wall on the inside of the "L".  The architect for the project was Turner Boaz Stocker of Dallas.
