Enterprise Research Campus Update #1 (August 2023)

Tishman Speyer is excited to announce that we have started construction on Phase A of the Enterprise Research Campus (ERC). Phase A of the ERC will transform a historically underutilized and vacant site on Western Avenue into a vibrant mixed-use community. It will contain approximately 900,000 square feet of mixed-use development, including residential, office/lab, hotel, conference center, restaurant, and retail use spaces, as well as new open space. Our goal is to help enhance an already diverse community and establish a welcoming environment to all. The Tishman Speyer team thanks you and other members of the community for being great partners over the past two years, and we can’t wait to be your new neighbor.

As the Enterprise Research Campus (ERC) project continues, we will provide project notifications that outline upcoming and impactful activities, including a map of the area for reference.


Crews have mobilized on site, which included erection of site fences, delivery of equipment, installing utility monitoring points, and set-up of storm water and rodent control systems. Pre-clearing of soils and regulated materials and pre-trenching took place. Sheet pile installation as preparation for the buildings’ foundation is under way with bulk excavation beginning the week of August 7th. Delivery of triple wide field office trailers will also take place next week.

Building Mock-Ups

Fencing and barriers are being installed in a section at the 2 Hague Street parking lot as construction begins on the first two of five mock-ups, which assist in evaluating design and constructability. Construction work will be taking place inside the new site on a median and in a part of the parking lot at the corner of Hague Street and Science Drive. The mock-ups will remain on site for the duration of the projects.
