Research Commons

Raleigh, USA

Five-building Life Sciences campus located in the Research Triangle


Centrally located in Research Triangle Park (RTP), the largest dedicated research park in North America, Research Commons will deliver world-class facilities for Life Sciences companies at all stages of growth.

79 TW Alexander Drive, Research Commons is in the heart of Research Triangle Park in Raleigh-Durham, just a short distance from Duke, UNC, and NC State. It neighbors a growing number of global technology and Life Sciences companies including Eli Lilly, Glaxo-Smith Kline, IBM. Research Commons is less than a 20-minute drive from Downtown Raleigh, Downtown Durham, and Chapel Hill, making it a highly desirable place to work.

The existing campus includes five office buildings, totaling 429,758 SF. Greenery surrounds the structures, which feature distinctive brick facades and glass-lined entrances allowing for abundant natural light. Global pharmaceutical manufacturer Grifols occupies several of the buildings; additional Life Sciences and adjacent companies enjoy space at the site as well.
