Durham, N.C., June 11, 2020 – JLL is pleased to announce that it has been retained by The Keith Corporation to market the 104-acre Genesis project in Research Triangle Park, located at 3029 E Cornwallis Road. The site was designed with flexibility to accommodate lab, life science, manufacturing or office users with up to 5.5 million square feet of space.

“We are honored and excited to be working again with The Keith Corporation in the Carolinas. This project meets a need and a void for build-to suit-opportunities for life-science and flex R&D office users that want to be in the world-famous Research Triangle Park,” said Dennis Hurley, Managing Director with JLL.

“Research Triangle Park is the ideal location for the wide range of users that this project could accommodate” said James Harrell, Principal of Investments at The Keith Corporation. “With unmatched visibility from Cornwallis Road to Highway 147, this project is an incredible opportunity with flexibility for companies looking for a campus headquarters, or for multiple companies in need of office and research space,” Harrell added.

Following recent approval from the City of Durham, the Genesis site is now shovel-ready, and utilities are actively being brought in.
