We have a 20 year history of developing collaborative life science partnerships with academic, medical and scientific institutions. The Science + Technology Group builds relationships and provides customized real estate solutions for the life science industry.
Forest City's Science + Technology Group began its work in 1984 when it became one of the first developers of life science campuses in the United States when it revitalized a vacant urban industrial area located in America's first and most prominent bioscience market, Cambridge, Massachusetts.
The result was University Park at MIT, one of the first mixed-use developments devoted to the life science industry. Today University Park is a thriving hub of activity, with 10 research & office buildings, over 250,000 square feet of hotel, retail and meeting space, and more the 670 residences, all located in the heart of the Cambridge biotechnology cluster. University Park offers state-of-the art facilities that support some of the most renowned institutions in the industry, and clearly demonstrates Forest City's understanding of the complex design, construction and operational needs of the bioscience industry.
The Forest City Science + Technology Group brings a long-term perspective and a highly-skilled interdisciplinary team from the fields of architecture, construction, leasing, financing, facilities management, life science company management, and new business development to transform our vision into reality.
