The Puerto Rico Science, Technology and Research Trust has announced plans to develop Science City on 68 acres in San Juan. The trust is seeking a development partner to lease, finance, develop and manage the Science City project on a long-term basis and potential partners can download more information on the project and the RFQ here.

COO of the trust, Ivan Rios, said: “Science City is a top priority for Puerto Rico’s economic development as a means of reversing recent trends and attracting new companies that will create high paying jobs and leverage the research activities occurring on the island."

The Science City site is located in the heart of San Juan’s dynamic Knowledge Corridor, surrounded by many publicly- and privately-owned hospitals, universities and research institutions such as the Comprehensive Cancer Care Center, the new Molecular Sciences Research Center, the University of Puerto Rico Medical School, the University of Puerto Rico Rio Piedras campus, Centro Médico de Puerto Rico campus with eight hospitals and many others.
