Research Triangle Foundation
Research Triangle Park Development
RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, NORTH CAROLINA
The Research Triangle Park is managed by the Research Triangle Foundation (RTF) of North Carolina. With a vision to help provide a better life for all North Carolinians, the Foundation is focused on orchestrating industry, university, and government collaborations to attract research, scientific and technology-based organizations, and support the creation of quality jobs and opportunities.
RTF is currently redeveloping areas within the Research Triangle Park to bring a live, work, play concept to the Park. 35North was providing Program Management for three concurrent projects for RTF: HUB RTP, Boxyard RTP, and Frontier. We acted as an Owner Agent in the role of Program Manager for each of the projects listed and was the primary contact with the developers, designers, contractors, and local municipalities.
HUB RTP: HUB RTP is a multi-developer project with RTF acting as the master developer. Totaling 100 acres, HUB RTP will be a walkable district offering a vibrant mix of workspaces, restaurants, retail, and recreational greenspace to support intensive programming in the center of Research Triangle Park. The 100-acre site has been entitled and rezoned as Science Research Park-Center (SRP-C), making it the only site in RTP zoned for mixed use development. Common area elements for tenants to enjoy will include a splash pad, amphitheater, boardwalks, vehicular and pedestrian bridges, bike paths, and other natural amenities.
Boxyard RTP: Boxyard RTP is a 15,000-square-foot cargotecture development that is sustainably constructed from re-purposed shipping containers. It will be coming to the Frontier RTP campus (Highway 54 near T.W. Alexander Drive) in 2020. Plans for Boxyard RTP include space for up to nine food and beverage vendors, as well as several retailers and service providers.
Frontier: The Frontier campus renovations includes parking maximization, campus wide landscaping updates, connectivity elements for vehicular and pedestrian access from HUB RTP to Boxyard RTP, building demolitions, storm water management, public interaction elements, and way finding.
