About Research Park
Research Park Area: North boundary is HWY 72; West boundary is Madison City Limits; East boundary is HWY 53 / Jordan Lane; South boundary is I 565.
Research Park is in close proximity to Redstone Arsenal and Marshall Space Flight Center. Cummings Research Park (CPR) is one of the world’s leading science and technology business parks, and it is a model for transforming research into business success.
From its beginning as home to a single engineering services company, Cummings Research Park approaches its 50th anniversary with a highly regarded reputation as one of the world’s premier science and technology parks.
CRP is celebrated in numerous publications for its high quality of development, as well as the “Who’s Who” list of tenant companies within its boundaries. The Park was named in 1997 as the Most Outstanding Research/Science Park in the World by the Association of University Research Parks (AURP).
CRP began as a public-private initiative and has become a powerful magnet for corporate investment in the community. CRP was intended to attract and retain the world’s top technology and research development companies, and to provide a world-class site for expansion opportunities for existing companies. The Park has served its corporate citizens well, enabling them to achieve significant business growth, which continues to positively impact the region’s economy today. This success creates significant new investment and employment opportunities for highly qualified area residents. CRP companies can rightfully claim origins of many of the most far-reaching technology developments in the world over the past 50 years.
In 1999, the Chamber of Commerce of Huntsville/Madison County made the initial contact with a developer from Los Angeles, O&S Holdings LLC. That contact led to an announcement in December 2002 that the company had reached agreement with the City of Huntsville to begin development of a specially zoned district in the park, known as the CRP West Commercial Services District. Located in the southeast corner of CRP West, at the intersection of Research Park Boulevard and Old Madison Pike, this 100-acre tract of land was soon transformed from farmland to a world-class shopping, entertainment, and business destination known as Bridge Street Town Centre.
Today, Bridge Street is a regional shopping and cultural destination. Included in the development are more than 700,000 square feet of upscale retail space, Alabama’s first Westin Hotel, upscale and casual dining alongside a 10-acre lake, walking trails, multi-tenant office buildings, and other commercial activities such as the Monaco Pictures movie theater and others.
