St. Lucie County is sowing the seeds of the future by creating a 1,650 acre Research and Education Park in the heart of Florida's Treasure Coast.
Anchored by the USDA's 170,000 square foot Horticultural Research Laboratory and the 90,000 square foot University of Florida's Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences, St. Lucie County's Education and Research Park is the home for scientists, researchers, and educators.
The master plan for the Research Park calls for over 800 developed acres to house the education and the development of components, and 850 acres for agriculture fields and for future growth.
Researchers at the Park have the opportunity to collaborate with scientists currently working within the St. Lucie County at the Smithsonian Martine Station, Harbor Branch Oceanographic Institution and Florida's Center for Excellence in Biomedical and Marine Biotechnology located in Fort Pierce.
In addition to the University of Florida facilities currently in the Park, there will be an additional 60 acre tract dedicated to K-12 education. Other institutions such as Florida Atlantic University, Barry University and Indian River Community College are only minutes from the park.
Make the St. Lucie County Education and Research Park your next location and take advantage of the tremendous research and development opportunities.
