Great Opportunities, Exciting Changes for Innovation Park!
Over the past 18 months, the Board of Governors of the Leon County Research and Development Authority (LCRDA), chaired by Leon County Commissioner Kristin Dozier, has been hard at work restructuring ownership of land and buildings within Innovation Park. Their steadfast work has come to fruition with acceptance of their plan by the Florida Department of Environmental Protection, acting on behalf of the Board of Trustees of the Internal Improvement Trust Fund. These changes will pave the way for great opportunities for Florida State University, Florida A & M University, LCRDA, and all Innovation Park community partners.
FSU and FAMU each received approximately 17 acres of developable land in Innovation Park. In addition to land on which FSU has already developed buildings it owns, FSU received the Sliger and Shaw Buildings, while FAMU received the Centennial Building. The LCRDA retained 5 buildings, several properties leased to private companies, and approximately 19 acres of developable land in and adjacent to the Park.
“Now that the restructuring is completed, we are very eager to move forward with the continued development of Innovation Park,” said LCRDA Executive Director Ron Miller. “We are working in earnest to create a strategic plan and development concept that will help transform Innovation Park into a more vibrant center for research and technology commercialization.”
