Grand Opening for Gateway Park

WPI officially opened its new Life Sciences and Bioengineering Center at Gateway Park in September, with a ribbon-cutting ceremony held at the new world-class facility. In October, RXi Pharmaceuticals (founded by Nobel Laureate Craig Mello) signed a lease to locate in the new building, with the option to become the lead tenant of a future 100,000-square-foot building planned for construction at Gateway Park.

Gateway Park recently was given its own street, Washburn Way, named for Ichabod Washburn, legendary entrepreneur and a WPI founder. WPI’s building has received several honors from the federal government, including the prestigious national Phoenix Award, and the Excellence in Economic Development Award for Urban or Suburban Development from the U.S. Department of Commerce.
