The Big Picture

An extremely ambitious, high profit-potential venture spanning over one million square feet, Innovation Square offers developers a rare opportunity to literally get in on the ground floor and grow along as a key component in a truly unique endeavor.

"As we envision it, Innovation Square will be unlike anything you've seen. In fact, it will be nothing short of a complete re-invention of the town square concept." - UF President Bernie Machen

With 45,000 square feet of incubator space encompassing laboratories, collaboration rooms and other support areas, this expansive downtown-to-university, multi-use complex is certain to serve as a breeding ground for breakthrough ideas and products for tech-based companies.

At the heart of Innovation Square lies Florida Innovation Hub, a super incubator that is destined to produce successful spinoff companies that will inevitably generate the need for additional new buildings on the 40-acre property.

Room to Grow

Infusion Technology Center at Innovation Square will house existing science and technology companies whose proven success has already created a demand for additional office space.

Innovation Square will be backed by substantial marketing support which will clearly benefit all who decide to incorporate this extremely desirable, leading edge complex into their blueprint for growth.

The University of Florida leads noted institutions including Harvard and Cal Tech in transferring technology to the marketplace. UF is known worldwide for the innovative products its research has produced. That is the key reason best-selling author Richard Florida cited Gainesville as the city with the greatest expected growth of creative class jobs from 2008 to 2018, with a projected gain of nearly 18%.
