UI Research Park's 10th Anniversary

 

The University of Illinois will celebrated the 10th anniversary of its research park Thursday by renaming the former Motorola building for local developer Clint Atkins.

A new mural inside the building was unveiled, showing Mr. Atkins, who died in April, and some of the projects he worked on.

The dedication of the Atkins Building — formerly known as the Gateway Building was followed by the park’s anniversary ceremony at 5 p.m., at which UI president Michael Hogan will speak.

The ceremonies will be preceded by tours of the research park. The first buildings in the park — the Atkins Building and the SAIC Building — were completed in 2001. In the 10 years since, the park has grown to include 12 buildings housing more than 90 companies and offices.
