Space Available at Tucson's Best Workplace

Where do emerging companies and technology giants work side by side? At Technology’s Best Address—the UA Tech Park at Rita Road. This research park is a dynamic, interactive community of business leaders and innovators who, by virtue of the Park’s layout, are able to network, exchange ideas, launch businesses and advance technology. The UA Tech Park offers world class office space, wet and dry labs, as well as space for research and development. This versatile facility allows the flexibility for companies to scale up or down, depending on demand. Tech Parks Arizona actively recruits companies in technology sectors that reflect the strengths of the University of Arizona as well as the industry strengths of our region: advanced energy, arid lands agriculture and water, sustainable mining, intelligent transportation systems and smart vehicles, defense and security, and precision health and diagnostics.

The Park totals 1,268 acres, and 2 million square feet of developed world class space, including single tenant as well as multi-tenant options. The Park is a perfect location for fast growing technology companies and can accommodate users at any stage of development from idea all the way through prototype development, testing, evaluation and demonstration of technology, through marketing and production. This infrastructure is key to supporting business growth as research and development needs and businesses evolve.

When companies lease our space, they tap into a variety of amenities that contribute to our award-winning Best Workplace in Tucson, as determined by votes from the Arizona Daily Star Reader’s Choice Awards. The Arizona Daily Star annually recognizes the “best of” all Tucson businesses and organizations, and in 2018 crowned the Tech Park at Rita Road as the “Most Innovative Workplace” and having the “Best Workplace Culture.” Park amenities include meeting spaces, an event center, food services (onsite café, catering, food trucks), special events for the Park community, a robust health and wellness program, park security, as well as a variety of utilities all based in a lush, zero discharge facility. Tech Cats (Park employees) come together during the workday to network creating an interactive community through the design of our outdoor spaces that facilitate interaction.

The decision to position a business in an environment that is structured to encourage and support technology and innovation is a catalyst to any business’ success. One of the most innovative offerings of the Tech Park is its program of business development assistance—the Tech Park is not just a real estate offering, but a full-service program of customized assistance for companies. The Arizona Center for Innovation, the business incubator, fosters technology innovation by helping startups and emerging companies develop their ideas, inventions, corporate structure, and secure funding. The Global Advantage program helps fast growth companies expand into the North American market by assisting with the search for strategic partners, customers, and testing, evaluation and demonstration of their technology. A highlight of technology testing is our Solar Zone, the country’s largest multi-technology, grid connected, solar energy demonstration site that covers 223 acres of the Park. Global Advantage also provides a soft landing for international or domestic companies interested in relocation or expansion.

The UA Tech Park is one of the largest employment centers in the region, hosting 52 companies that together employ approximately 6,000 skilled workers in 15 different industries. It is strategically located in one of Arizona’s fast-growing regions in Tucson and Pima County, located directly off of Interstate 10, approximately a 15-minute drive from both the airport and downtown Tucson and 20 minutes from the University of Arizona. The remaining 1,000-acre undeveloped portion of the Park brings additional opportunities to create a live, work, play environment with the potential for residential, commercial, office and hospitality development, all located within the Vail School District, one of the state’s top performing districts.
