Cummings Research Park is the second largest research park in the country and the fourth largest in the world. It is one of the world’s leading science and technology business parks, with a mixture of Fortune 500 companies, local and international high-tech enterprises, U.S. space and defense agencies, thriving business incubators and competitive higher-education institutions. CRP is the home of nearly 300 companies, more than 26,000 employees and 12,500 students.



Established in 1962, Cummings Research Park began as an idea during a brainstorming session between Dr. Wernher von Braun and a group of Huntsville community leaders. This conversation about the city amenities needed to attract business sparked the beginnings of Cummings Research Park, first known as Huntsville Research Park.

The group set out to create a collaborative environment for companies who supported the ground-breaking governmental research on Redstone Arsenal. Brown Engineering was the first business to move into the Huntsville Research Park. The engineering firm, headed by Milton K. Cummings and Joseph C. Moquin, purchased a 100-acre lot in 1962 at the end of the dirt road that developed into what is known today as Sparkman Drive.

As a founding business in Huntsville Research Park, Brown Engineering established their research laboratories and flourished. In 1967, Teledyne Incorporated of Los Angeles bought the engineering firm. The company, known today as Teledyne Brown Engineering still remains an anchor tenant in the Park.

In the late 1960s and early 1970s, IBM, Lockheed, Northrop, and the University of Alabama in Huntsville all soon located within the park, all of which grew tremendously and remain in the Park today. After the death of Milton K. Cummings in 1973, the park was renamed Cummings Research Park (CRP). The original settlement of CRP, known as CRP East, filled up by the late 1980s. In 1982, the City of Huntsville purchased additional land, known today as CRP West. Companies including Adtran and Dynetics Inc. as well as the HudsonAlpha Institute and its 152-acre biotech campus are located there.

In 2007, Bridge Street Town Centre opened inside CRP West. The mixed-use project was originally established as a nearby place to offer services to employees inside the Park but soon became a booming regional retail destination.

There are several opportunities to locate in Cummings Research Park through lease options in existing buildings or through the land acquisition and building development process.

For available existing properties for lease, please follow the link below, to the right/left. Through numerous commercial property brokers, there are a variety of office sizes and associated services available. If you don’t see options that meet your company’s needs, please contact Erin Koshut, CRP Director at the contact info listed below.

Currently, there are approximately 400 acres of land available for development in CRP. Land parcels are available in Cummings Research Park according to a master plan that was designed to provide parcels with a wide variety of size and cost options. Most parcels have a generally rectangular shape and range upward in size from a minimum requirement of five (5) acres. The price per acre for each parcel is determined by its relative proximity to the major boulevards and water features. In addition, prior to the sale of the parcel, the City of Huntsville will complete basic site preparation including road access, curbing, utilities, telecommunications, and drainage.

The process of purchasing and developing land as well as options on leasing or purchasing existing office space available in Cummings Research Park East and West is streamlined through the office of the Research Park Director. The Director maintains an office at the Huntsville/Madison County Chamber and provides a single point of coordination, guiding companies through the approval process. To discuss all options for development in CRP, please contact:

Erin Koshut, Cummings Research Park Director at 256-535-2086 or



For undeveloped land prices, please contact Erin Koshut at 256-535-2086 or


The Chamber of Commerce of Huntsville/Madison County and officials with the City of Huntsville began a new master plan for CRP in 2015. The 50-year plan, designed by a team led by architectural firm Perkins & Will, was finalized in November 2016, adopted by the CRP Board of Directors and the Huntsville Planning Commission.

The CRP Master plan is geared towards enabling innovation and technological achievement for companies located within the Park, regardless of their size or type of research- or technology-based activity. CRP will support the growth of companies throughout all growth cycles. The Master plan incorporates start-up growth through incubators at UAH and BizTech and further developing those start-ups with unique opportunities within a maker-hacker village. Mid-level growth companies find a place in the scale-up area that offers shared services and labs, and large apex companies with entire campuses find a home throughout CRP West and other areas.

The Master plan also includes an overhaul of the CRP’s image as well as incorporating new and additional outdoor amenities to further connect the Park by adding way-finding signs, greenways, bicycle and pedestrian pathways, and pocket parks. In addition, the Park will be supported by programming and services such as food truck fests, lightning-round tech talks, lecture series’, musical events, tech trolley tours, and more connected and collaborative activities.
