Syracuse University will erect a new $107 million building to bring its life sciences programs together in one complex.
For the first time, the 210,000-square-foot building will allow the College of Arts and Sciences to house its biology and chemistry departments and biochemistry programs under one roof, with the latest in laboratory design and technology, Chancellor Nancy Cantor said.
Depending on city approval, construction is expected to begin next year, and the building is expected to be complete for the fall 2008 semester. It will be attached to the Center for Science and Technology building on the school's main campus.
The complex is the largest and most ambitious project in the university's recent growth burst and brings the tally of what the school plans to sink into new and renovated space on and off campus by 2010 to about $258 million.
