The ground was broken Thursday on a new commercial park right outside Redstone Arsenal’s Gate 9.
The Redstone Gateway will be another area like Cummings Research Park. The development, which is a partnership between Redstone Arsenal, Huntsville, and the company Corporate Offices Properties Trust, is meant to attract more companies to the area.
Georgia Tech Research Institute will take up half of the 76,000 square feet of office space.
“We knew that we had to have office space to grow and grow in the future, for our economy to grow,” said Huntsville Mayor Tommy Battle. “So we came together 10 years ago and put this partnership together. It gives us expansion capabilities for generations to come.”
Battle says the whole park will be able to fill over four million square feet of office space.
