UNH’s InterOperability Lab signs lease for Madbury Road site in downtown Durham
The Madbury Commons project recently received final planning board approval for the mixed-use development on 2.6 acres in the heart of downtown Durham. Even more recently, the University of New Hampshire finalized the lease with Golden Goose, the developers of the property.
Marc Sedam, executive director of UNH Innovation, said locating the IOL downtown will allow for better integration and more opportunities for collaboration with the broader university campus.
UNH-IOL was founded in 1988 and is a full-scale, nonprofit test lab that provides independent, broad-based interoperability and standards conformance testing for data, telecommunications and storage networking products and technologies.
Durham Administrator Todd Selig called the move a “paradigm shifting proposition for downtown Durham” and is the culmination of nearly five years of dialogue between the town and the university.
As part of the project, two fraternity houses and an outdated housing complex known as “The Greens” will be demolished.
