Research Triangle, NC – Thursday, January 15, 2015 saw the launch of The Frontier at RTP Park Center. Hundreds were in attendance to see the new facility and hear about the promise of this huge new addition to the entrepreneurship and innovation efforts in North Carolina.
What is The Frontier?
The Frontier is a 142,000-square-foot building in the Park Center portion of RTP. It is a mix of offices, co-working spaces and free meeting areas.
The Frontier is designed to create a collaborative “open innovation” environment – Bob Geolas, President and CEO of the Research Triangle Foundation
With the opening of the Frontier, RTP begins the development of the higher density mixed-use regions of the park to make sure RTP is ready for the next 50 years. This is reported to be the largest innovation center in the country!
RTP was created to belong to all the citizens of North Carolina and we now have a new hub for entrepreneurship and innovation in North Carolina.
This is just the beginning of what’s to come at Park Center, and it’s the community’s to use long after today is over. Come back any time!
Here are some pictures from the event which was followed by the acclaimed RTP180 series talks:
