Cal Poly broke ground on a 16,200-square-foot expansion of the Technology Park this summer. The project includes a new two-story building adjacent to the existing Mount Bishop Road complex. Building officials anticipate opening the new facility next August. The structure will offer a blend of fully finished spaces primed for immediate occupancy, as well as customizable areas for tenant improvements.
The expanded Tech Park will continue to offer an environment where faculty, students and industry professionals can seamlessly collaborate, and it will provide space for startups and opportunities for sponsored research and development. For tenants, the facility will house advanced infrastructure with high-speed internet access. It is being built to LEED Silver certification standards, which reflect the campus's commitment to sustainable building practices.
Reflective of the Cal Poly student body degree paths, the Technology Park focuses on attracting businesses and startups in the public health, cybersecurity, agriculture, and biotechnology and software industries.
