ROCHESTER, Minn.-Destination Medical Center is the economic development initiative to make Rochester a global hub for health and wellness.

One major part of the plan is called Discovery Square -a 16-block subdistrict designed to be a collaborative hub for science and research.

With the growth, there are plans to look into opening a larger Discovery Square building that will be another hub for researchers and businesses.

“We thought about Discovery Square - we thought about a campus approach. It wasn't just about a building, it's about how can we lever the amenities in One Discovery Square that could also benefit the tenants that are in Discovery Square Two,” said Developer Brent Webb.

Thursday was just a preview of the new building. Developers are still researching potential parking issues that would come with a larger building.
