Mayo Clinic construction heats up, despite cool weather

Here's some from my column in today's paper. Look for the whole piece in the print edition.

Though the weather is starting to cool off, Mayo Clinic's local building projects continue to heat up.

New mayo warehouse On Friday, Mother Mayo submitted a development plan to build a more than 83,000-square-foot, two-story warehouse in northwest Rochester.

It looks like the proposed warehouse is targeted for the corner of Valleyhigh Drive Northwest and Superior Drive Northwest.

That places it next to Mayo's Superior Drive Support Center, which houses Mayo Medical Labs. That complex is the former home of Celestica Inc.

It is not clear what Mayo Clinic plans to store in the warehouse. No one familiar with the project was available to talk about it Tuesday.

Mayo - Rochester Exterior 09.13.10 Meanwhile, Mayo Clinic is planning a ceremonial groundbreaking event for its proposed proton beam radiation therapy center in downtown Rochester.

Look for the event to happen Thursday, with local VIPs wielding gold-plated shovels after a round of celebratory speeches.

Of course, dirt has already been moving for much of the summer to prepare the way for the more than $200 million complex. It will house the eagerly anticipated pencil-beam cancer treatment center.


Actually the warehouse would be south of the Technology Drive Center.

Jon - You mean it is not near the Superior Drive Support Center?
Is the Technology Drive Center the same as the Mayo Support Center?
Are you saying it is by the complex that Western Digital built instead of the one that Celestica built?

The building permit does not list any address, so it is a little hard to interpret where this thing is going.

Mayo Support Center is on West Circle Drive, just north of 41st street.

Mayo Technology Drive Center is off of Valleyhigh Drive near Benchmark Electronics.

My question is...what are they building north of the Mayo Support Center along West Circle Drive??

Luke - That's the new Mayo Data Center, I believe.

Looks like the area I was asking about, in another post. That looks like it is north of the WD building. Across from the gold course ("existing driveway" on the map)

That's the JDSU site:

I believe existing driveway is the entrance to Pace Dairy. This lot is just to the north of Crenlo. Mayo has several other warehouse facilities in the area including the Mayo Inventory Center.

I been in the area i want to know what are they building north of the Mayo Support Center along West Circle Drive?
