TGen, IGC Break Ground on Future Phoenix Home

NEW YORK, June 16 - More than 350 guests, including Arizona Governor Janet Napolitano, attended a groundbreaking ceremony in downtown Phoenix on Friday to celebrate the start of construction on the future home of the Translational Genomics Research Institute and the International Genomics Consortium.


The six-story, 170,000-square-foot building is the first planned for a larger biotech complex called the Phoenix Bioscience Center at Copper Square. Total project cost for the TGen/IGC headquarters is anticipated to run no more than $46 million.


The facility should be ready for occupancy by November 2004, according to TGen.
