DMC could be taking physical shape in less than a year.
The law firm of Larkin Hoffman, which opened an office in Rochester about a year ago, hosts a Real Estate Forum each year. With the DMC initiative touted as the primary development project in the state, the Minneapolis-based group decided to hold this year’s event in Rochester and make DMC the focus of their 2016 real estate discussion.
Discovery Square and updates on the Destination Medical Center design guidelines were among the highlights in this week’s Destination Medical Center Corporation board meeting.
Earlier this month, Mayo Clinic and DMC made a major announcement about the next steps for Discovery Square, an urban research center where doctors, researchers, and scientists can work together on advancements in medical research, technology, and patient care.
“Mayo Clinic’s investment in Discovery Square is an exciting step for the city of Rochester. Discovery Square will propel the development of innovative ideas, products, and businesses in southeast Minnesota,” said Lt. Governor Tina Smith, DMC Corporation Board Chair.
The first building will break ground in 2017, and Mayo Clinic is currently searching for a real estate development firm to take on the project.
