One Discovery Square
A catalyst for innovation.
One Discovery Square stems from a monumental vision — one that embodies the very nature of discovery. This new urban life science hub is a catalyst for innovation, connecting Mayo Clinic experts with industry-leading researchers, entrepreneurs and start-ups. The 90,000SF building is at the epicenter of Discovery Square, one of six districts in Rochester’s Destination Medical Center plan. Designed by RSP and HOK with Mortenson as the owner and developer, to support biomedical, research, education and technology innovation.
The goal is to create a vibrant innovator community that’s not limited to research alone. A variety of flexible research and office spaces, including lab facilities designed specifically for Mayo Clinic, ensure a cross-pollinated environment. And the building’s proximity to Mayo will allow for accelerated connections between researcher and patient, encouraging better and faster care.
Celebrating science and putting it on display, the highly visible and active “Co-Lab Space” on the ground floor intertwines hospitality and science, welcoming tenants, stakeholders and the public to collaborate in a state-of-the-art environment. Throughout the site, pedestrian-friendly landscaping and outdoor gathering spaces form a vibrant live-work-play setting. This flexible and forward-looking design approach transforms Discovery Square into a local landmark, ensuring its success for years to come.
