(ABC 6 News) - Mayo Clinic and the Pontiac Land Group have announced plans to put the Gonda building expansion project on hold due to the pandemic.

In a statement Mayo and the Pontiac Land Group wrote, "Mayo Clinic and Pontiac Land Group today announced that plans for the 11-floor expansion of the Gonda Building in downtown Rochester, Minn., will be paused due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Mayo Clinic remains fully committed to developing and implementing plans that support the facility needs of patients for years to come, including facility expansion opportunities with Pontiac Land Group and other developers."

The project will add eleven floors on top of the Gonda building; four for the Mayo Cancer Center and outpatient procedures and seven for a hotel.  

The project was originally announced in 2018 and was scheduled to be complete by the end of 2022.
