KUD has partnered with Ben-Gurion University of the Negev and the Municipality of Beer-Sheva to develop the Advanced Technologies Park (ATP) in Beer-Sheva, which is designed to advance research and technology growth in Israel. The site in Beer-Sheva is located in the southern portion of Israel, directly adjacent to the main campus of Ben-Gurion University (BGU). The ATP project will include more than four million SF of new technology space on forty one acres of undeveloped land in two major components including a government development for the Israeli Defence Forces and a private component of the project. KUD is master developer for the 19-acre private component and will develop specialized technology and research buildings with two million SF of space.
The ATP is expected to:
provide significant new employment and business opportunities in affiliated industries and institutions; strengthen the maturing Israeli high-tech industries by housing emerging companies; attract new inward bound technology producers; and establish institutional research and technology companies that seek to locate their operations in Israel.
