Construction of our new building is well underway: a 40,000sf state-of-art, first of its kind in the region incubator/accelerator to support startups and second stage businesses looking to commercialize new technologies in the North Florida region. This hard science incubator will offer one of a kind space with 30+ wet labs, dry labs, tissue and bio-culture room, fabrication and prototype development spaces, 20+ offices, multiple coworking spaces, and conference rooms, simultaneously supporting over 100 early stage and growing tech companies in high priority targeted industries. It will sustain 600+ full time, permanent high quality jobs in the region based on IMPLAN modeling. Completion expected in 2024.
North Florida Innovation Labs
Danfoss Turbocor Expansion
Danfoss Turbocor Compressors recently completed expanding their existing footprint in Innovation Park with a new 44,000sf facility that will add 120 new jobs. The new jobs will include full-time research and development positions within advanced manufacturing. This will be Danfoss’s second expansion in recent years after building a 22,000 sq. ft. Application Development Center that opened in 2017.
The Florida State University Interdisciplinary Research & Commercialization Building (IRCB)
The project consists of approximately 125,000sf of new space for a new interdisciplinary research building for Florida State University that will be located in Innovation Park of Tallahassee. The new facility will house interdisciplinary teams by creating a collaborative environment to conduct research and develop commercialization opportunities to bring products to market. The new spaces will include research labs, imaging/characterization labs, clean rooms, collaboration, conference and administrative spaces. The building will accommodate a variety of researchers, including the disciplines of bio-medical engineering, chemistry, chemical engineering, condensed matter physics, and device prototyping.
Center for Advanced Power Systems Expansion
The Center for Advanced Power Systems (CAPS) is expanding its space in the Park. The CAPS Power Electronics Laboratory capability will increase substantially by adding a new 6,400sf space for research and testing. The new space will feature a room that is specifically for high voltage work and will includes a Faraday cage to provide safety when testing high voltages. In addition to the new addition, CAPS will be taking over space on the third floor of FSU Foundation Building A, which will include 8 new offices, a conference room, three 500+sf labs and cubicles for students.
