ROCHESTER, Minn. (Fox 47) – Mayo Clinic reveals a new project set to rise from the ground in Rochester’s “Discovery Square” district, and it comes thanks to a large gift.
The clinic received a 32-million dollar donation from the New York based Anna-Maria and Stephen Kellen Foundation to build a four-story 64-thousand square foot research building.
It will be located just north of the current Mayo Opus Building, which sits at the intersection of 4th Avenue and 4th Street Southwest.
The clinic hasn’t figured out what kind of research will happen inside this new building, but the groundbreaking is expected next year with a move-in date for 2022.
The Kellen Foundation is named after a New York investor and his wife. Both received treatment at Mayo during their lifetimes.
