Turner Construction Co. has been selected by Kaleida Health to build a new 12-story Women & Children's Hospital on the Buffalo Niagara Medical Campus.

Turner, which is headquartered in New York City but has a Buffalo office, most recently partnered with Kaleida Health on the new Gates Vascular Institute.

The hospital design will be bright and inspired by the vibrant colors of houses in Allentown and the facade of City Hall, while incorporating gardens and a glassy exterior, architects told the city Planning Board in July.

Hospital officials have said they would like to break ground in the spring and be open by December 2015.
