    Adtalem Global Education (NYSE: ATGE) signed a long-term lease to move its Chamberlain University nursing school into the ex-printing and distribution facility once the rehab is complete at 10315 USA Today Way in Miramar. The printing press is five miles away from Chamberlain'scurrent Miramar campus at 2300 S.W. 145th Ave.

    Jason Blum, VP of development for Clayton, Missouri-headquartered CRG, told the Business Journal that the former printing facility was an ideal spot for Adtalem.

    "It is located near [Chamberlain University's] existing campus, which was an important consideration for current students and stakeholders, and the size and layout of the building fit the parameters needed for its new campus," Blum said in an e-mail.

    The facility is also large enough to increase ChamberlainUniversity's student body "in order to meet the ever-growing demand for health care professionals," Blumadded.

    Pending regulatory approvals from the state, the new campus will house administrative offices for Adtalem'sother schools, too, including Ross University School of medicine, the American University of the Caribbean School of Medicine, and the Medical Education ReadinessProgram, according to a release from CRG.

    Besides administrative offices and classrooms, the future seven-acre Chamberlain University will have science labs, simulation care centers, study areas, and lounges, and 300 parking spaces, CRG stated.

    CRG plans to spend $250 a square foot renovating the structure, Blum said. Preliminary work has already started, but a timeline for the project is yet to be determined.
