The UA Tech Park at The Bridges is Tech Park Arizona’s newest multi-tenant community of innovation. It will feature 1.2 million square feet of office and lab space to support approximately 5,000 employees within a 65-acre campus. Its first building is named The Refinery because of its proximity to the talent and bright minds that can be mined from the University of Arizona. The four-story 120,000 square foot building will serve as the University of Arizona’s innovation and commercialization hub creating a centralized location that bridges resources and accelerates the most promising inventions.
The University of Arizona will occupy 50 percent of the space at The Refinery. Activities housed at there will include the University of Arizona Applied Research Corporation (UA ARC) and the University’s cyber operations program; the new offices for Tech Launch Arizona; an additional regional outpost of UA Center for Innovation; plus space for students and faculty.
The remainder of the Class A office space is available to businesses looking to co-locate with the University of Arizona. The Bridges is part of a larger 350-acre multi-use development that will include residential and retail development in central Tucson just 3 miles from the University of Arizona’s main campus.
UACI is developing a 4,000 square foot incubator space with the purpose of physically connecting innovations at the university and the resources in the community.
