    Innovation districts are an increasingly popular model for urban development, that integrate institutional anchors, business, technology, and education to catalyze growth and seize on broader economic shifts. The Fuse at Mason Square project, part of the ongoing George Mason University Arlington Campus expansion, takes this model one step further, co-locating R&D, academic, industry & agency commercial space, and incubator space in a single 345,000 square foot facility. This cutting-edge project offers a useful lens into the world of innovation district development, including what it takes for these projects to be successful and achieve their ambitious goals—from planning through financing, development, and fit-out—as this model of urban development continues to gain steam.

    Join Cathy Pinskey, Program Director at George Mason University; Amanda Bergin, Project Director at Page Southerland Page; Gunnar Terjesen, Project Manager at Clark Construction; and Katie Fanady, Senior Analyst at Edgemoor Infrastructure & Real Estate for this insightful and thought-provoking discussion on the Fuse project and its implications for innovation-driven development. The panel will be moderated by Max Planning, Associate Director at Newmark. Accompanying this panel discussion will be a hard hat tour, offering attendees the opportunity to see this development in action.
