The University of Arizona's College of Medicine is putting forth a plan to expand its Phoenix campus.
The proposed new building will be in downtown Phoenix, just north of the university’s Health Sciences Education Building.
The project will cost $136 million and take 26 months to build.
Funding will come from a borrowing program approved by the state Legislature in 2008. That same program, under which bonds are issued, paid for the other work on the Phoenix campus.
“This is going to be a 10-story, 245,000-square-foot building that will house researchers from the University of Arizona College of Medicine Phoenix and our partners, our clinical partners and other folks that we work with," said Al Bravo, UA College of Medicine in Phoenix spokesman. "We’re talking about researchers that work together on campus, researchers that work together within the community tackling some of the big issues we’re facing.”
The Arizona Board of Regents will vote on the plan June 6.
