Research Triangle Park Development
RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, NORTH CAROLINA
The Research Triangle Park (RTP) 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 RTP to bring a live, work, play concept to the Park. 35 North provided program management for RTF’s three concurrent projects: HUB RTP, Boxyard RTP, and Frontier. We acted as an owner agent in the role of program manager for each project and served as 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 RTP. 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 repurposed shipping containers. It opened on the Frontier RTP campus (Highway 54 near T.W. Alexander Drive) in 2021. Boxyard RTP includes space for up to nine food and beverage vendors, as well as several retailers and service providers.
Frontier: The Frontier campus renovations included parking maximization, campus-wide landscaping updates, connectivity elements for vehicular and pedestrian access from HUB RTP to Boxyard RTP, building demolitions, stormwater management, public interaction elements, and wayfinding.
