How important is the role of residential and commercial improvements in the neighborhood play in developing the desired district and its importance to the Memphis Bioworks Foundation?
To attract the necessary talent, we need to improve all areas of the community, not just provide jobs. We need neighborhoods that are comfortable, affordable and within close proximity to available jobs. The UT-Baptist Research Park is located in the heart of the Memphis Medical Center. Beyond the medical and science community in which to work, Downtown Memphis is a dynamic place to live and play. The city’s urban renaissance has produced an eclectic combination of historic attractions, businesses, residential development, hotels, retail stores, restaurants, small shops, sports facilities, and other conveniences. Fortunately, Downtown Memphis continues to experience dramatic residential, retail, and entertainment growth, with tremendous prospects on the horizon, which will continue to help us attract the talent that we need.
