New Building for the College of Pharmacy

At the May 2019 meeting, the Board of Regents approved the New Building for the College of Pharmacy project and the appointment of RDG Planning and Design as the architect for its design. The College of Pharmacy Building was constructed in 1960, with a major addition built in 1992. The building’s narrow structural bays and shallow floor-to-floor heights do not allow for the reconfiguration needed for modern research and teaching laboratory spaces or modern classrooms. In addition, the building is not large enough to meet the College of Pharmacy’s space needs. As such, the college’s teaching, research, and office spaces are distributed across seven campus locations. The College of Pharmacy is proposing the construction of a new teaching and research facility that will address its need to modernize and increase its physical space for academic, research, and student support functions. A new 142,000-gross-square-foot building located on the corner of Glen Avenue and East Huron Street is proposed that will house active learning-style classrooms, laboratories, associated support spaces, faculty and administrative offices, and student-focused areas. There will be an increased demand of approximately 30 parking spaces due primarily to the loss of 24 spaces on the building site.
