San Juan Knowledge Corridor
The ambition of the San Juan Knowledge Corridor is to fuel economic growth and innovation by taking advantage of Puerto Rico’s growing Life Science industries. Functionally, the Corridor is a 2,000-acre territory comprising the University of Puerto Rico’s Rio Piedras Campus, San Juan’s Central Medical Campus, the University of Puerto Rico’s Botanical Gardens, and the Universidad Metropolitana. The designation of this zone within the San Juan metropolitan area is intended to formalize a comprehensive Life Science cluster that will facilitate the development of a new economic vision for Puerto Rico. The first phase of the project is a new Science City – a 83-acre state-of-the-art enclave that integrates educational and research campuses with commercial laboratories, vibrant mixed-use urban neighborhoods, efficient transportation networks and dynamic public open spaces.
