Construction Begins at Innovation and Research Park at Rosalind Franklin University in North Chicago
NORTH CHICAGO, ILL. — Construction is underway at the new Innovation and Research Park at Rosalind Franklin University of Medicine and Science in North Chicago. Academic and industry scientists and entrepreneurs will use the property to translate the university’s biomedical research into new treatments for disease. The university hired Cushman & Wakefield to attract international and national bioscience companies to the new science park. The four-story, 100,000-square-foot addition to the campus will feature laboratories as well as conferencing and office space for faculty, commercial startups, and healthcare and life science companies. The University Finance Foundation and Gateway Development completed the $53 million financing for the expansion late last year. Completion is expected by summer 2019.
