Wayne State University plans to pump more than $90 million into a new biomedical research facility at the edge of its campus -- a move that continues its push to improve Detroit's Midtown. The university is hoping to use $30 million from the state, along with $63 million from its coffers, to renovate the old Dalgleish Cadillac building and tear down the American Beauty Iron Building next to it. The project would be the largest in WSU's history. Work on the Albert Kahn-designed building would begin in November. Plans include extensively remodeling the current 127,000-square-foot building and adding 70,000 square feet. The building would house programs in cardiovascular disease, metabolic disorders -- such as diabetes, hypertension and obesity -- systems biology, bioinformatics and computational biology, behavioral translational science and biomedical engineering. Location was key to the move, Wayne State University President Allan Gilmour said. The new building sits between the Henry Ford Health System and the Detroit Medical Center. Gilmour said the hope is to drive other improvements in the area, such as restaurants and even residential developments. Images of the current site are included.
