Buildings are constructed as “shell” buildings with common areas and build-to-suit suites for individual companies to lease space. Options include both office and lab configurations. Fox/Atkins, having a long term ground lease for use of the University land, leases space to companies in their properties.
Leasing Opportunities in the Research Park
Fox/Atkins Development LLC is the developer of the Research Park and manages the leasing of multi-tenant buildings through FDC, LLC. There are eleven multi-tenant buildings in the Research Park with commercial office space available for lease. Fox/Atkins constructs custom office space within the buildings for tenants to meet their needs. An architect and interior designer works with each tenant to create a layout and design to reflect the company's needs. Leasing in the Research Park is priced competitively with other university research parks. Fox/Atkins offers financing options to provide turn-key opportunities for tenants to move into a fully built out space.
