The Illinois Science & Technology Park is a new regional catalyst designed to help transform Illinois from a scientific research hub to an economic engine for bioscience and nanotechnologies. Strategically located at the geographical center of the Chicago area’s major universities, teaching research hospitals, and pharmaceutical/medical device companies, the park will play an integral role in creating the coveted, high-quality scientific jobs that are driving the 21st Century economy. Transformed from it’s prior role as a single-user pharmaceutical campus, the park offers up to 2 million square feet of state-of-the-art life science, laboratory, office and conference space for lease in renovated and to-be constructed buildings. The park offers a central location between downtown Chicago and Lake County which allows for easy accessibility to Chicago’s major universities, research institutions and life science corporations.
