Space Florida project moves forward

PENSACOLA, Fla. -- Space Florida is moving ahead with plans for the first commercial development in the nine-acre Pensacola Technology Park, issuing a request to recruit and architectural firm and citing Sept. 12 as its deadline to negotiate an agreement with one. The Melbourne-based quasi-government agency filed a "Request for Qualifications" with Florida officials that detailed its building plans for a nearly 60,000-square-foot facility that would include areas for technological research and training. Space Florida's plans envision five tenants that would rent space in the building. Space Florida's role is to strengthen the state's position as a leader in aerospace research, investment and exploration. It's headquartered just outside Kennedy Space Center.
