Science City is the major component of Science District. It is located in Puerto Rico’s capital city of San Juan, hosting state-of-the-art facilities for research, academic, and business initiatives, as well as other lifestyle amenities. The 70-acre site will contain a vibrant, culturally rich, planned science campus in an urban setting with many important science, technology, research, health, and academic resources nearby.
The Trust is executing a plan of action with the ultimate goal of facilitating such an innovation ecosystem. To do so, the Trust is pursuing two action steps: First, it is seeking a development partner to lease, finance, develop, and manage the mixed-use 70-acre Science City project (Master Development- RFQ). Secondly, it is identifying and approaching potential anchor tenants to be a part of Science City.
The Innovation Center serves as our headquarters and houses co-working, shared, and private offices and “dry labs” that serve to accelerate and incubate science and technology ventures. It also counts with several conference rooms, training spaces, and other facilities such as high-speed internet.
