The Auburn Research Park was developed through a partnership between the State of Alabama, Auburn Universtiy, and the City of Auburn. It encompasses 156 acres with lakes, meadows, forested areas and a wetland preserve. The park is being developed as a mixed-use campus with high technology companies, university research facilities, business support centers, technology transfer capabilities, supporting business firms, and amenitites such as hotel and restaurant to encourage interaction between park tenants, university faculty and students, and local entrepreneurs.
An ongoing development, AECCI has completed two projects at the Auburn Research Park. The first was a $387,000.00 project that consisted of the development of sitework, roads, utilities. The second, Building 1 (pictured here) is 43,793 square feet, and can accomodate both Class A office and laboratory space. This included a complete tenant fit-out for the Auburn Research & Technology Foundation, Northrupp-Grumman, Johnson Sterling, Inc., and Roanoke Electronic Controls, Inc.
The park is master planned for up to 26 buildings totaling approximately 950,000 square feet of office and laboratory space. It is being developed in two phases with Phase I having sites for up to 13 buildings that will accommodate about 390,000 square feet of space.
The park is a sustainable development designed to balance development against protecting the natural environment. Buildings constructed by the ARTF will be LEED certified.
