Site Selection Services

The Research Triangle Park (RTP) is home to some of the most innovative technology-based companies in the world. RTP provides a competitive cost platform with quality sites and facilities to meet diverse real estate needs for R&D operations. RTP space options range from large parcels for individual campus developments to flexible office and lab space for lease in one of the Park’s many multi-tenant buildings. Comprehensive covenants and zoning ensure that the natural environment of the Park is conserved and that the majority of the Park's occupants are research-oriented entities. 

As the management entity of the Park, the Research Triangle Foundation maintains relationships with a network of state and local officials, real estate brokers, developers, financial institutions and utility and transportation professionals. Our staff is positioned to assist in the site selection process, including:

  • Site selection information
  • Tours of potential sites and buildings
  • Clarification of governmental regulations
  • Coordination of regional and community partner information
  • Information on incentives and other funding
  • Contact with other economic development entities for financing, construction and other needs
