State and city officials broke ground Oct. 14 on a highly anticipated project for a long-empty tract of prime real estate in downtown New Brunswick.
The New Jersey Innovation and Technology Hub is a $665 million, 550,000-square-foot medical education and research center. Rutgers and Princeton universities both plan to use the facility, along with Hackensack Meridian Health and Rutgers Robert Wood Johnson Medical School.
“It is ambitious and it is aggressive,” Rutgers President Jonathan Holloway said at the groundbreaking ceremony in New Brunswick. “It is fundamental to how we will deliver knowledge and make discoveries and revolutionize the ways we provide health care and medicine.”
