Taking High-Tech To New Heights in AZ

Business Facilities, the leading site selection magazine, spotlighted Arizona this month. From microchips to missiles, stents to satellites, electric vehicles to optics, Arizona is at the forefront of innovation. The state’s access to a highly-skilled talent base, robust supply chain, and low business costs all contribute to the best environment for business. The UA Tech Park at The Bridges was showcased as one of the strategic business locations in Arizona.


Take Your Kid to Work Day - Home Edition

Usually, the park is full of child innovators and future leaders as they follow their parents from the home into the workplace on Take Your Kid to Work Day. This year we still celebrated with a special work from home edition.


Living Wall Celebration

Tech Parks Arizona is committed to sustainable development principals and doing our best to limit our environmental impact. Our newly-added living wall, developed by LiveScape, helps with air purification, balancing temperature and more.


Virtual Mingle

Tech Parks Arizona ended the month with an afternoon of social camaraderie. The virtual mingle brought together Tech Park tenants and some new faces. Participants were given the chance to meet a couple of Tech Park team members as well as learn about new development projects taking shape.


Essential Workers

A very special thank you goes out to all the Tech Park’s essential custodial staff working on-site. We celebrate you! Your hard work and dedication day after day does not go unnoticed. Thank you for rising to the challenge of increased sanitation measures. We can’t wait to thank you in person.
