Be The Match Breaks Ground on $60M Headquarters
On July 8, one of Minnesota’s largest nonprofits, Be The Match®, broke ground on a new and expanded headquarters in Minneapolis’ North Loop Neighborhood. Be The Match is the world’s leading nonprofit organization focused on delivering cures through bone marrow and umbilical cord blood transplantation. Over the past 25 years, the demand for transplant services has grown dramatically-the number of patients with diseases for which a bone marrow transplant can be a cure has increased, along with the types of diseases that the procedure is used treat.
The new Coordinating Center will help Be The Match meet this growing need while better serving patients, donors and health care professionals around the world. Be The Match staff will be brought together in a single, seven-story building with approximately 240,000-square-feet. The project is the largest build-to-suit office to be undertaken in the North Loop, with Target Field, Target Field Station and Ford Center serving as major catalysts for the expansion of the area. The project team includes developer United Properties, building architect RSP Architects, interior architect Perkins + Will and general contractor RJM Construction. The City of Minneapolis is serving as the projects pollution remediation grants manager.
