Chatham Park Research & Development District Plan

Preston Development is underway on an 8000+ acre development in Chatham County, NC, and O’Brien Atkins is excited to play a role. Preston Development approached O’Brien Atkins to help in understanding how the “work” portion of the Live-Work-Play development should be planned. O’Brien Atkins leveraged its 40+ years of experience designing facilities for Research Triangle Park companies for this engagement. O’Brien Atkins examined the major transportation bypass corridor and identified different zones that would better cater to identified types of industry. The overriding theme always being to attract cutting-edge companies, but factor in companies of different size and maturity. O’Brien Atkins helped characterize what each zone would look like, keeping in mind that Chatham Park is a Live-Work-Play development and needs to offer a broad spectrum of conveniences.
