Boca Raton Innovation Campus (BRiC), a fast-growing technology and life sciences hub in Boca Raton, recently reached lease agreements with two companies to continue its expansion efforts. The new tenants include Guident, a leading developer of software solutions for remote monitoring and teleoperation of autonomous vehicles, and Arete, a top incident response and cybersecurity provider.
The office complex, the former IBM research and development facility, is owned and operated by CP Group, Florida’s largest office landlord. Guident is relocating from Florida Atlantic University’s Tech Runway and will occupy a 5,000-square-foot space to host the first national autonomous vehicle remote control command center. Arete is moving from its Boynton Beach location to occupy a 13,500-square-foot space.
Other tenants that have moved to BRiC since CP Group’s acquisition in 2018 include Boca Raton Regional Hospital, Modernizing Medicine, Kroger, Canon, and Total Wine.
“Arete looks forward to being a part of the BRiC community alongside other innovative organizations,” Joe Mann says, Arete’s CEO. “We are excited to create a space where our team can collaborate and thrive.”
CP Group is currently using a $100 million capital improvement investment to transform the 1.7-million-square-foot facility into an amenity-rich campus similar to Google’s campus. It will include a Science Technology Engineering Art and Math (STEAM) lab, Boca Raton’s first food hall, a presentation hall for up to 1,000 people, two coffee shops, an autonomous grab-and-go, a wellness center and more. Current amenities include a farmer’s market, fitness center, on-site daycare, outdoor courtyards, running and biking trails and large displays of art, including an NFT exhibit and a 30-foot-tall, mirrored stainless-steel outdoor sculpture.
“As we attract innovative organizations like Guident and Arete, BRiC continues to solidify its standing as South Florida’s preeminent location for fast-growing creative and technology companies,” Michael Perrette says, General Manager for BRiC. “We look forward to continuing BRiC’s history of innovation by offering both amenities and dynamic office environments that allow us to compete with Silicon Valley and bring these businesses to Boca Raton.”
CP Group has also proposed the addition of a grocery store, medical offices, residential, retail and hotel spaces as the next phase of BRiC’s transformation into a mixed-use, live-work-play destination. Learn more by visiting https://workatbric.com/futureofbric.
