Florida Southern College breaks ground on new Doctorate of Physical Therapy School
WMB-ROI is proud to announce the groundbreaking of Florida Southern College’s new Doctoral Physical Therapy (DPT) facility. Construction will come in two phases — a 6,000 S.F. renovation followed by an 11,000 S.F. addition, which will provide faculty offices, classrooms, and a state-of-the-art lab for the expected 300+ student body. The new school will mark Florida Southern College’s first off-campus program, presenting a prime opportunity to make a statement along busy North Florida Avenue.
Lead Architect Mike Murphey took design inspiration from Frank LLoyd Wright, putting emphasis on natural materials, colorful glass, and broad, flat roofs with wide overhanging eaves.
“What a wonderful way to expose those design elements to the public, to increase the exposure of Florida Southern to thousands of people each day on Florida Avenue,” – Mike Murphey, WMB-ROI
The new program is set to debut in August 2019.
