Auburn University Buys Two Buildings in Huntsville’s Cummings Research Park

Auburn University is expanding its footprint in the Huntsville, AL area with the acquisition of a new research facility located in the Cummings Research Park.

The university has reached an agreement with LogiCore Corp., to purchase two buildings with more than 40,000 square feet of space situated on a nine-acre parcel of land. Samples Properties acted as the university’s broker.

The facility is located within minutes of Redstone Arsenal’s Gate 9 entrance and near many of Auburn’s research partners in defense, aerospace, law enforcement and biotech sectors. According to the university, the property will expand Auburn’s presence in the tech hub and establish a permanent foundation from which Auburn can leverage its regional reputation and public-private partnerships into national prestige and influence.

Plans for the facility include configurable laboratories for on-site research and development; meeting spaces and engagement opportunities for government, industry and academia to allow for in-person and virtual meetings; exercises and more.
