Though the roots of Innovation Quarter lie with Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center, it has found a real estate and development partner with Wexford Science & Technology, a BioMed Realty Company, that shares the same passion for encouraging greater collaboration, connectivity and congregation of people and ideas.
Wexford achieves this by partnering with client institutions to create and build knowledge communities that are vibrant, mixed-use, amenity-rich environments where innovation thrives. Wexford joins and stays with its partners through the formation, development and growth of the knowledge community.
A knowledge community offers access to strategic research resources and business services. By doing so in a single location, as with Innovation Quarter, it creates an environment ripe for long-term success for the partners and the communities in which they are located.
Wexford’s various locations create a platform for learning and sharing between university partners, community and the private sector. Wexford’s ongoing projects include: BRDG Park at the Danforth Plant Science Center in St. Louis, MO, the Cortex Innovation Community in St. Louis, MO, Hershey Center for Applied Research in Hershey, PA, Innovation Research Park at Old Dominion University in Norfolk, VA, University City Science Center in Philadelphia, PA, University of Maryland BioPark in Baltimore, MD, University of Miami Life Science and Technology Park in Miami, FL, University Technology Park at ITT, in Chicago, IL and The Chesterfield in Durham, NC.
