Cary, NC – Research Triangle Park has unveiled a long-awaited renewal of it’s Master Plan. The document calls for more density, more mass transit and a more urban feel to the iconic technology and innovation park.
The first part of the plan calls for development in the northeastern corner of the Park, bringing high-tech town homes, shops and amenities.
According to WRAL, real estate developer and investor Hines has been selected for the project.
Also reported, zoning changes could allow buildings of up to 14 stories and much smaller lot size.
Employment Expect to Grow to 150,000
The new RTP Master Plan calls for the work force capacity in the Park to triple to 150,000, according to BizJournals.
With more residents living inside the Park, and more mass transit, the existing roadway structure is seen to be adequate for future growth.
