SPARK’s board this afternoon officially authorized the signing of a lease for the 13,000-square-foot first level of the 24,168-square-foot facility, said Elizabeth Parkinson, SPARK’s director of marketing and public relations.
The organization will also relocate the Michigan Innovation Equipment Depot – a collection of used life sciences equipment, mostly donated by Pfizer Inc. – to the Smith Furniture building. The equipment, previously stored at a secluded warehouse near Eastern Michigan University’s main campus, will take up about 1,500 to 2,000 square feet.
"This will allow us to consolidate it there and be able to manage everything out of one location," Finney said.
