Upcoming Event: Growth and Transformation at Research Triangle Park

Growth and Transformation at Research Triangle Park

Established in 1959, Research Triangle Park (RTP) was the first of its kind in the country – a highly-coordinated and successful real estate development effort aimed at locating business headquarters near world-class research and workforce talent. Today, RTP consists of 24 million square feet of built space across 7,000 acres in the center of the Triangle. In response to new demands, opportunities and challenges, RTP’s transformation continues with its Hub, Frontier, and Boxyard developments, bringing more than 2 million more square feet of built space in its first phase, and establishing the Park’s first 24/7 community to support its growing workforce.

Join TCREW in welcoming Scott Levitan, President and CEO, and Linda Hall, Executive Vice President and CFO, as they discuss how RTP is looking to the future.
