The South Jersey Technology Park at Rowan University is EXPANDING!
The South Jersey Technology Park (SJTP) at Rowan University, located on approximately 500 acres of land in Mantua Township, NJ, is seeking letters of interest from potential development partners capable of helping to advance the next phase of its Technology Park expansion. The current phase will include approximately 270,000 square feet of combined research, development and office space with an anticipated delivery of Winter 2017. The development will be comprised of two to four buildings adjacent to the existing 60,000 square foot building, strategically located in close proximity to Rowan’s main campus in Glassboro and less than 30 minutes from Philadelphia. SJTP is in receipt of letters of intent (LOI) for tenant occupancy for the referenced square footage and is seeking proposals from developers with the ability to finance, design, build, own and manage facilities under a contract with the organization. Site control is already established by Rowan University on behalf of the SJTP.
Pursuant to The New Jersey Medical and Health Sciences Restructuring Act, Rowan was designated as a state comprehensive research university and absorbed the School of Osteopathic Medicine and Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences—formerly the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey—making the University only the second in the nation to have both osteopathic and allopathic medical programs within the same institution. These developments, along with the recent construction of the Cooper Medical School at Rowan University, have bolstered Rowan’s standing as a research institution and are expected to contribute significantly to the expansion of its academic programs, research activity and overall enrollment.
Athletic Facilities Development
Concept drawings for future athletic facilities development are shown to provide a broader context for the Technology Park site. The Technology Park development and athletics development comprise Rowan’s West Campus Plan and are constituent parts of Rowan’s Campus Master Plan. Development of the athletic facilities will likely be pursued through a separate solicitation process.
