UM research complex buildings getting $78.5M overhaul

Associated Press

Ann Arbor — The final two reusable empty buildings on the site of a former Pfizer campus in Ann Arbor are in line for a $78.5 million renovation project.

The University of Michigan’s Board of Regents on Thursday approved plans to overhaul the buildings, which are called 20 East and 25 and are on what the school calls its North Campus Research Complex.

The University of Michigan Medical School will use the space to create more than 50 modern research laboratories for its faculty scientists and their teams.

The university also will repurpose lab benches, cabinets and other materials from parts of the North Campus Research Complex. Other buildings at the former Pfizer campus already have been updated and converted for use as laboratories, offices and other spaces.
