Design Vision and Park Master Plan
The Illinois Science + Technology Park started with the former corporate headquarters of pharmaceutical giant G.D. Searle and has created a community of scientists, inventors, and innovators. We are dedicated to the cultivation of a multi-cultural environment that will create and sustain businesses from basic research through commercialization. This environment includes world class laboratories, office space and key support amenities.
How does the vision and master plan come together in a world class development?
Not only can businesses move right into the Illinois Science + Technology Park but there is room to grow and flourish here. Since inception, the Illinois Science + Technology Park development has added over 1300 jobs.
Upon completion of its redevelopment the Illinois Science + Technology Park will offer up to 2 million square feet of office and state-of-the-art facilities including chemistry and biology labs, CGMP facilities, as well as state-of-the-art clinical research labs. (See Master Plan below).
We are working in partnership with the Village of Skokie to not only revitalize this campus but also integrate into downtown Skokie. This project will serve as a catalyst to increase retail and residential activity. Hotels and expanded facilities will enable downtown Skokie to become a 24/7 destination to live, work and play. When completely developed, our goal is over 4000 jobs directly in the park, with many more jobs associated with the redevelopment of downtown Skokie.
