About the Project

The College of Pharmacy Building was constructed in 1960 with a major addition built in 1992. Although the building is in good condition, its narrow structural bays and shallow floor-to-floor heights do not allow for reconfiguration into modern classroom and laboratory spaces. 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 130,000-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 and 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.
