MCA Tech Park, Inc.  --  a subsidiary of the MCA Foundation  --  is planning the construction of a four-story, multi-million dollar biomedical innovation center.  The building will be dubbed the Cardwell Collaborative, after local businessman Jack Cardwell who gave a generous donation the summer of 2013 in support of its construction. 

The building will anchor a new biomedical research park, also being developed by MCA Tech Park, Inc.   The research park will be located inside the proliferating Medical Center of the Americas campus.  >> click here to read more and to see a map.

The Bigger Picture

The Cardwell Collaborative is a major milestone of progress in what is intended to be a broader 13-acre biomedical research park.  The park is where research related to our community’s niche healthcare needs will take place.

The park is a 13-acre site located along the south side of Interstate 10 at Colfax Street, which is about two blocks east of Raynolds Street.
