Construction of the next building at the Oklahoma Technology and Research Park in Stillwater will soon be underway.

In a special meeting held Friday, Sept. 14, the OTRP Joint Board approved awarding of a contract for construction of the Michael S. Morgan Business Accelerator Building to Globe Construction of Oklahoma City.

The Morgan Building will be a multi-tenant building encompassing approximately 24,000 square feet.

A groundbreaking ceremony for the development will take place Friday, Sept. 28 at 10 a.m. Occupancy of the building is scheduled for October of 2008.

The project continues the phased-in growth concept adopted by OTRP officials at the park’s inception in 1998.

Plans have called for completion of build-out of the complex to be accomplished over a 15-year period.

Occupying a total of 160 acres at the intersection of Highway 51 and Sangre Road, the OTRP site is master-planned for 1 million square feet of lab, office and support space for high tech companies, OSU research activities, and supporting amenities.

Tenant companies are expected to eventually employ more than 2,000 people from the region.

The Park features a cluster, campus-style plan to facilitate interaction. It has fully redundant telecommunications technologies and offers access to the National LambdaRail high-speed data network.

Additional information is available on the OTRP Web site,, or by calling Ken Koch at Meridian Technology Center, (405) 377-3333.
