Innovation Quarter Services
Wake Forest Innovation Quarter in Winston-Salem, N.C., is one of the fastest growing urban-based research parks in the United States, with a master plan for as much as 6 million square feet of world-class office, laboratory and mixed-used space over its 145 developable acres. The Innovation Quarter supports a diverse mix of academic and commercial tenants by providing modern facilities, managed services and special amenities. It is projected that by the end of 2014 more than 50 technology companies and 26 academic entities will be operating in the Innovation Quarter, occupying more than 1.1 million square feet and employing more than 3,000 people alongside 1,200 students annually enrolled in workforce training in emerging technologies and the residents of more than 2,850 nearby apartments, lofts and condominiums.
We focus on further developing the Innovation Quarter by engaging in outreach to support the surrounding entrepreneurial community and providing the dry-lab and wet-lab incubator space for startup companies. Through these initiatives, we are creating a vibrant, knowledge-based community in the heart of Winston-Salem where people can work, live, learn and play.
