The groundbreaking of Herndon Square this week is crucial to the transformation that West Midtown is undergoing. The new housing development will be located just adjacent to Technology Enterprise Park (TEP). TEP, located at North Avenue and Northside Drive, is a public-private partnership development between TUFF and Georgia Tech. It is the region’s premier biotech research park and boasts a dynamic community of students, researchers, and entrepreneurs. Despite being in one of Atlanta’s most underserved neighborhoods, TEP expands community opportunity via investments from life sciences, medical device, and pharmaceutical companies. Herndon Square will help create the density and foot traffic that makes research parks successful. TUFF’s live-work-play philosophy has proven to be successful at research parks across the country, most famously Tech Square. Herndon Square provides the housing that will allow students, scientists, and the community to truly live, work, and play together. Read more here.
