New neighborhood will be built next to the Technology Park, aiming at real estate developments focused on innovation; the capital invested is private and will reach R$70 million ($18.5 million).
São José dos Campos’ Technology Park will receive a sort of extension named “Cidade Tecnológica” (Tech City), a planned neighborhood that will be built in São José to meet the demand of the innovation sector.
According to the City Hall, the capital invested is private and will reach R$70 million ($18.5 million) in order to create the infrastructure for the land lots that will be sold afterwards.
“At the Technology Park we have universities, more than 100 companies, research institutes, but we lacked real estate development, and we were able to get a good partner for that”, said the mayor Felicio Ramuth (PSDB).
According to Exto Incorporação e Construção, this development will be the first planned innovation district in Brazil on a land with a total area of 3,325,628.53ft2 and only 116 land lots available, with privileged access through Presidente Dutra Highway.
The development will be launched on June 12, in a ceremony conducted at the São José dos Campos’ Technology Park.
“The launching’s purpose is to consolidate the biggest innovation environment in the country. Cidade Tecnológica will offer a complete infrastructure of commerce and services that can be used by workers of the Technology Park and citizens of São José, Taubaté and neighboring cities”, said the company.
It will be possible to house different facilities, such as a convention center, hotels and innovation hubs – “It’s about urban development in the innovation area”, said the mayor.
“São José dos Campos is a city with an entrepreneurial vein, with a global economic sector already established, such as the development of new technologies for the aerospace industry. That’s why Exto is focusing on the Tech City project” said Roberto Matos, Exto’s CEO.
For him, the innovation district “stands for the biggest innovation environment in the country”, and the area will be projected for verticalization, so that “housing and hospitality services will welcome people interested in building productive knowledge, living and having fun”.
