In 2014, LifeSource wrapped up construction on a new $18.7 million, 40,000 square foot building on West River Road, just north of Broadway.
LifeSource procures organ and tissue donations for transplants, matching them with recipients. The building is sited to face the river. Healing gardens overlooking the river will provide a space for donors and recipients to share time and reflect on their journey.
“We want to be able to honor their decisions to give the gift of life in a very visible and tangible way,” CEO Susan Gunderson told the Star Tribune. “That was one of the real draws about the riverfront property. We’re planning to have a very meaningful garden.”
LifeSource expects about 125 employees to work from the location.
