NASA Exploration Park, Kennedy Space Center, Florida (No NASA involvement)
RUSH Construction, Inc. has begun the site-work for the first phase of Exploration Park, the high-tech research and office park being developed by The Pizzuti Companies in partnership with Space Florida and NASA. The fill dirt being used to develop the first phase of the Park has been donated by Port Canaveral Authority as part of a cooperative agreement between Space Florida and the Port. Exploration Park’s initial 60-acre phase, located just outside the security gates at Kennedy Space Center, will accommodate approximately 350,000 square feet in up to nine separate LEED-certified buildings, expected to include educational, office, research/lab space and flexible high-bay facilities. A second 139-acre phase has also been identified for future development.
