May 24, 2019
The 330,000-square-foot building will have lab and office space. Leaders say it will increase visibility for the biotech hub.
A new building being planned for the University of Maryland BioPark will provide more room for companies and increased visibility, according to leaders of the effort.
Designs call for the 10-story building with a glass exterior to be located at the corner of Martin Luther King, Jr. Boulevard and West Baltimore Street, according to Gregg Herlong, director of development at BioPark-based Wexford Science + Technology, which is working with the university on the building.
“It’s the most prominent site in the BioPark,” Herlong said, noting that the size means it will stand out to travelers on Martin Luther King, Jr. Blvd. It will also serve as the entry point to the BioPark, which is designed to offer space for companies and research that’s close to the University of Maryland Baltimore campus, including for companies that are commercializing tech created at the university.
