Princeton Longevity Center, a preventive medicine facility, has completed construction on the 71st floor of 1 World Trade Center. The design, from Ware Malcomb, is hospitality-focused and mirrors the aesthetic established at the Princeton, N.J. location.

The 10,000-sf facility is a new build-out that includes a 2,000-sf image-diagnostic licensing suite, including advanced technology imaging rooms and a CT scan room. The space also includes a reception area, a lounge, individual patient rooms, exam rooms, offices, and a fitness room.

A virtual receptionist assists guests with check-in at the entrance to the suite. The lounge offers views from the 71st floor and incorporates wood-look luxury vinyl tile flooring, as well as the curved reception desk with backlit features. Individual patient rooms provide guests with a private space and include computers, showers, and a relaxing lounge atmosphere. Exam rooms and doctor offices incorporate calming colors while floor-to-ceiling windows provide ample natural light that is contrasted by the rich tones of the design color palette.

In addition to Ware Malcomb, the build team included Icon Interiors as the general contractor. As it is a requirement of all 1 World Trade Center tenants, the project achieved LEED Gold certification.

Additionally, as these smaller, more remote hospitals are acquired by larger regional and national healthcare systems, the first step by new ownership is often to update and rehabilitate the building.
