Significance: Building 31, the Animal Research Building, was constructed in 1959. Its presence reflects the growing trend in medicine towards biological research, most notably through the use of animals. Despite its much later date of construction, Building 31 continues the general appearance of the other buildings at the Allen Park facility through its brick facade and limestone cornice. However, the building is constructed of modern materials, including concrete block, with metal framed windows of various sizes.
