Space Florida, others eye tech park

PENSACOLA, Fla. – Space Florida, the state's aerospace economic development agency, is talking to Pensacola officials about establishing an operation at the now-vacant nine-acre downtown Technology Park. Plans are for a multi-tenant building for four tenants that would require some 65,000 to 75,000 square feet of space. The proposed anchor tenant would be a leading aerospace company from the region. Other tenants would be academic and economic development service providers. Space Florida and the park's owner, the Pensacola Industrial Development Corp., have a memorandum of understanding. The internationally known research organization, the Florida Institute for Human and Machine Cognition, is located two blocks south of the Technology Park.
