Northwestern University’s new Simpson Querrey Biomedical Research Center is being built in 3 phases on the site of the former Prentice Women’s Hospital. Phase 1 is the below grade structure. Phase 2 is a 12-story, 600,000 sf structure with state-of-the-art research and support space for 23 research groups per floor. The 3rd phase will be a future vertical expansion that adds another 15 floors.
The curved glass exterior and flexible laboratory floor plans will foster a dynamic, collegial environment that will draw research faculty and students. The building will be connected floor-by-floor to the Robert H. Lurie Medical Research Center.
