Groundbreaking on Brigham and Women's Building for the Future

BRA Director Peter Meade, on behalf of Mayor Menino, celebrated the groundbreaking of a new medical research and clinical facility at Brigham and Women’s Hospital (BWH) alongside Brigham and Women’s President Dr. Betsy Nabel, Board of Trustees Chair Marshall Moriarty, Massachusetts Health and Human Services Secretary, John Polanowicz, and patient, Jim Wishart.

The Brigham Building for the Future is a $450 million development that will be located at the corner of Fenwood Road and Vining Street in the Longwood Medical Area (LMA).  The 11-story, 360,000 SF building will encompass state-of-the-art lab and outpatient clinical space, advanced imaging facilities, and underground parking.  The proximity of research and direct care space is central to the emerging field of translational medicine—the rapid transition of clinical advances from the bench to the clinic.  The facility, scheduled to be completed in the fall of 2016, will enable BWH to consolidate many of the current leases it holds for research space throughout Boston.
