Earlier this week, ground was broken on the newest private sector building at the University of Tennessee (UT) Research Park at Cherokee Farm, bringing the number of buildings at the site to three.
The UT Medical Center’s Advanced Orthopaedic Institute will include an ambulatory surgery center and large-scale clinic space for OrthoTennessee along with designated research space for the Medical Center and its partners.
Realty Trust Group, an affiliate of PYA, the power behind teknovation.biz, is the real estate development partner for the project. The 81,000 square foot facility was designed by BarberMcMurry Architects, and The Christman Company is the general contractor. Financing is provided by First Horizon.
“With this groundbreaking, the UT Research Park is expanding in an exciting new direction that will provide opportunities for collaboration with our renowned researchers and students,” UT President Randy Boyd said. “We look forward to how this project will impact the lives who come before the center seeking help and researchers and students who seek to contribute to the latest in medical technology and practices.”
The first floor of the building will serve as the ambulatory surgery center. The second and third floors will house physical therapy and medical and administration offices. There will also be dedicated space for orthopedic and other medical research through the Advanced Orthopaedic Institute.
