Bridge Business Center - Technology, Innovation, Research
Outlook - The Voice of Lower Bucks County Chamber of Commerce
October 1, 2008

In late 2006, Keystone Redevelopment Group, LLC acquired a 35 acre parcel of land and buildings located in Bristol Township, formerly owned by Rohm & Haas. The entire area, now known as the Bridge Business Center, is located within a state designated Keystone Innovation Zone (KIZ) and a state designated Enterprise Zone. The goal of this project is to redevelop the park into a high-quality research & development and manufacturing center.

The building at 370 Patterson Blvd. represents 120,000 of the nearly 300,000 square feet of laboratory and related office space that will be rehabilitated and retrofitted to provide the chemical and life science industries with world class research and development facilities. This is a critical component for Lower Bucks County to attract new and expanding enterprises.

Currently underway is a more than $4 million renovation of a modern 50,000 square foot multi-use laboratory and research building. With the exterior work completed, the interior work is now underway. The first tenants are expected to begin occupying lab suites in the first quarter of 2009. One of those tenants is Bucks County Community College, whose Lower Bucks County chemistry classroom facilities will be located in the building.

By working with state, county and local leaders, the Bridge Business Center has been able to build a strong public/private partnership in redeveloping the park..

This partnership will also enable the Bridge Business Center to take advantage of alternative energy technologies through the creation of a clean and reliable small-scale power production system that includes Microturbines and geothermal technologies. This will provide a secure and independent source of energy, control the rising costs of utilities and markedly reduce the site's carbon footprint.
