New Bldg. 33 Complex To Focus on Infectious Diseases

By Carla Garnett

An artist's rendering of how the new Bldg. 33 complex will look once complete in 2005.
If all goes as planned over the course of the next 2 years, by November 2005 the northeastern corner of NIH's Bethesda campus will be the site of a new 150,000 gross-square-foot lab facility, 1,230-space multilevel parking garage, underground storm water management system and a plaza/courtyard. Currently dubbed the Bldg. 33 Complex, the project will be completed in several stages with the first stage set in motion in late September.
