Auburn buys former LogiCore facility in Huntsville

The research facility is in Cummings Research Park

Auburn University has purchased two buildings from LogiCore Corp. in Huntsville.

Auburn University has reached an agreement to buy two buildings on a nine-acre parcel of land in Huntsville’s Cummings Research Park.

The buildings, purchased from LogiCore Corp., are minutes from Redstone Arsenal and near many of Auburn’s research partners in defense, aerospace, law enforcement and biotech.

The facility will “significantly expand Auburn’s presence in the fastest-growing tech hub in the country,” according to a university press release.

“We are excited about the opportunities to expand our research capability in Huntsville, which is home to many members of the Auburn Family and our valued research partners,” said Auburn University President Jay Gogue. “We hope this facility will quickly become the primary connection for the Huntsville community to Auburn University and will be the go-to destination for government and industry entities around Redstone looking to meet in an unbiased, trusted location for technical interfacing.”

Plans for the facility include configurable laboratories for on-site research and development in critical technology areas; meeting spaces and engagement opportunities for government, industry and academia to allow for in-person and virtual meetings; exercises and more.

 “This is a defining moment for Auburn University and the Huntsville community where today meets tomorrow,” said Jim Weyhenmeyer, university vice president for research and economic development. “This facility will fast-track connections that change the world through our valued research partnerships.”
