Technology Enterprise Park

In 2005, when the opportunity  to create a biotechnology and life sciences research park arose, Georgia Tech turned to TUFF.  When land became available near the main campus, TUFF loaned Georgia Tech the capital to acquire the property. This provided the catalyst for the University to capitalize on an economic growth opportunity for commercialized bio-science intellectual property.  Using its general obligation investment grade credit to enhance the debt's marketability, TUFF invested in the first facility and minimized the credit impact to Georgia Tech.

Once the park is fully developed, Technology Enterprise Park (TEP) will contain approximately 600,000 square feet of life science research space in 5 facilities. The first building, a 5-story 126,000 square foot structure, was completed in March 2007. The TEP facilities are designed with advanced mechanical, electrical, plumbing and security systems as well as loading dock and service areas specifically tailored to the particular needs of multiple, transient wet lab users.
