The second phase of Michigan State University’s Grand Rapids Innovation Park (GRIP) along Grand Rapids’ Medical Mile includes the 205,000-sq.-ft. Doug Meijer Medical Innovation Building, which will house a variety of spaces — including office, collaboration, radiopharmacy and clinical — to enable synergies among academic medicine, healthcare delivery systems and industry partners. The new, 7-story building will focus on driving innovation through public-private partnerships by encouraging relationships across tenants, and as a result, bring new discoveries to market. Anticipated outcomes of the collaboration include research, testing and commercialization of new therapies and devices.
The Innovation Building will complement the existing 162,800-sq.-ft. Grand Rapids Research Center, which houses meeting space, core research labs and offices. A 600-car parking deck and green space are also part of the Phase II expansion.
