JUPITER, FLA. — Jones Lang LaSalle (JLL) Project and Development Services has completed the Max Planck Florida Institute for Neuroscience, a LEED Gold-certified research center, in Jupiter. It is the first U.S.-based institute for the Germany-based Max Planck Society, a global scientific research organization. The three-story, 100,000-square-foot facility includes 57,600 square feet dedicated laboratory space and is situated on six acres at Florida Atlantic University’s John D. MacArthur Campus. The project was primarily funded by the State of Florida and Palm Beach County, which received more than $180 million in public funding including $66 million for the facility’s construction. ZGF Architects LLP designed the building, and The Weitz Co. and DPR Construction were construction managers. The Florida Institute’s scientists are focused on the nervous system, its capacity to produce perception, thought, language, memory, action and emotion. Their primary goal is better research and treatments for brain disorders.
