Florida Gulf Coast University Innovation Hub


Fort Myers

Florida Gulf Coast University has joined the Backe Group in a collaborative venture to create Florida Gulf Coast University Innovation Hub, a 1.2 million square-foot, state-of-the-art research and development area. The site will become home to a state-of-the-art facility to be built for studying renewable energy, solar energy, alternative energy sources, biotechnology, nanotechnology, green technology and other programs.

The research park will be located on 241 acres adjacent to and on the south side of Southwest Florida International Airport, and near FGCU’s main campus and Gulf Coast Town Shopping Center. The location of the proposed facility literally serves as a “hub” to the region.

Ask for information regarding development & construction, community relations, and inquiries into becoming a corporate partner in the FGCU Innovation Hub.
