Purdue, state, local officials to dedicate Purdue Research Park at AmeriPlex-Indianapolis

The public is invited to join  dedication of Purdue’s new Purdue Research Park at AmeriPlex-Indianapolis at 1 p.m. Wednesday, Jan. 21.

Purdue, state and local officials will lead the celebration, which will help high-tech entrepreneurs create new businesses, develop new technology and expand life sciences research in Indiana.

The new $12.8 million technology center will accommodate up to 75 businesses and create 1,500 jobs with an average annual salary of $54,000. Most of the new jobs will be in the life sciences and high-tech areas.

The new facility is located at 5225 Exploration Drive along the I-70 corridor and near the midfield terminal of the Indianapolis International Airport. The 78-acre site was purchased by the Purdue Research Foundation and Holladay Properties, a South Bend-based national real estate development company. The park is the fourth Purdue Research Park in the state. The University’s other established parks are the Purdue Research Park in West Lafayette, Purdue Research Park in Merrillville and the Purdue Research Park in New Albany.
Individuals wishing to attend should RSVP to the Purdue Research Foundation Office of Client Services at 765-496-1238, crjackson@prf.org.
