The bucolic, sprawling University Research Park on the West Side, home to some of the area’s most illustrious biotech companies, is poised to begin a new era.

The research park is teaming with the Mandel Group of Milwaukee on an ambitious, multi-phase project with 400,000 square feet of new construction, including housing, a hotel, lab/office space, food hall, climbing gym and parking. It marks a major evolution for the 250-acre park, now characterized by modern labs and office buildings surrounded by green spaces and parking lots.

The project, called “Element Collective,” came in response to a research park request for developer proposals and would introduce a more urban environment where office tenants could live, host visitors, eat and recreate, and also provide a new set of amenities for the surrounding area.

“It’s a place to have lunch with a colleague, coffee with an investor, or a drink with a prospective business partner,” park managing director Aaron Olver said. “It will give our employees an option to live, work and play within the URP community without reliance on an automobile. And it will open University Research Park to the community beyond the research park.”
