Why ATLAS

ATLAS is the culmination of over two years of efforts by the cities of Bryan and College Station, working closely with the developer of Traditions and The Research Valley Partnership, the local economic development entity. With over 200 acres of entitled real estate opportunities along the Bryan-College Station city limits line, ATLAS has been carefully created to provide speed to market and flexible real estate solutions for companies of all sizes.

Lake Walk, the vibrant Town Center of ATLAS and Traditions, where parks, lakefront dining, and the region’s most innovative hotel unite the spirit of Texas past and future. With approximately 90,000 square feet of retail, another 32,000 square feet of restaurant, and initial office/health and wellness space of over 60,000 square feet, ATLAS Town Center will provide businesses and consumers alike an experience like no other location in Bryan-College Station can.

Other partners have already found ATLAS attractive. Texas A&M is under construction on the first component of the newly formed Center for Innovation in Advanced Development and Manufacturing (CIADM). This first element currently under construction is a $91 million facility to be owned by FujiFilm Diosynth Biotechnologies Texas. This world-class facility will be home to a Glaxo Smith Kline manufactured product in addition to providing a national response capability in the event of a man-made or natural pandemic. Texas A&M recently announced the second piece to this HHS-awarded national center and is currently in preconstruction phase. These national assets are situated near Nutrabolt, the maker of Cellucor nutritional supplement products, and Caliber Biotheraputics, the world’s largest plant-based vaccine manufacturing facility. Caliber's mission is to develop and commercialize protein-based therapeutics that improve outcomes for patients with cancer and other diseases. Caliber’s production facilities represent a fundamentally different approach to bioprocessing, through the use of modular biomanufacturing. Using this approach, projects can be completed far more rapidly and products delivered at a lower cost than traditionally possible. 

“The Atlas announcement represents another brilliant step in accomplishing the Biocorridor vision. We are honored to work day in and day out with a development partner that desires to compete with us on the global playing field. I know Atlas will be world class.”
