Innovation Park is a hub for economic development, scientific research, and commercial development activities in Leon County.

Ken Redda, interim vice president for research at Florida A&M University stated, “The acquisition of the Centennial Building and the undeveloped land at Innovation Park by FAMU will go a long way in relieving our institution’s shortage of research spaces for now and many years to come. The acquisition of these premium properties sends the right message to our researchers that FAMU is committed to hands-on research activities on- and off-campus.”
