This developer-driven design-build project consists of a four-story, 150,000-square-foot stem cell research facility with laboratories, interactive research "pods", offices, administrative areas and an interconnecting classroom auditorium. The research building consists of cast-in-place concrete and the auditorium is made with long-span structural steel framing.

The project was awarded LEED Gold certification by the U.S. Green Building Council.
