Public-Private Collaborations Advancing Tomorrow’s Education and Business Spaces
May 11, 2018 | Atlanta Metropolitan State College | Atlanta, GA
Creating environments that support the integration of higher education and business is essential to our progress. These environments allow higher education to expand and refine its relevance to the workforce, while business optimizes on the research and development of techniques or tools. What does it take to develop the right type of incubator space?
This event will provide:
Insight on process, approach and tools considered in establishing this project from a financial point of view.
The evolution of Georgia Tech's development on 5th Street: the past, current and future.
What remains the same and what are the changes.
What makes projects like this attractive to investors? The range of characteristics of the users and how they operate: student, faculty, researcher, industry.
The Georgia Institute of Technology (Georgia Tech) asked an Atlanta firm to design Coda, a 750,000-square foot mixed-use complex with some unusual features. The development is a key addition to the school’s Tech Square, a mini-neighborhood in Midtown planned in the early 2000s as a hub for education, operations, and real-world learning.
