As new developments continuously sprout up across Bryan-College Station, the growth of this area is acting as a magnet, attracting new markets and emerging industries. Among those new developments, the Traditions Club welcome ATLAS, Texas’ first and only community designed for “companies engaged in the manufacturing of biologics and pharmaceuticals”.
ATLAS has drawn in additional company partners within the biotech industry. One of which is FujiFilm Diosynth Biotechnologies Texas, which will "provide a national response capability in the event of a man-made or natural pandemic". This company will be near the global headquarters of Nutrabolt, the maker of Cellucor nutrition products, and Caliber Biotherapeutics, the "world's largest plant-based vaccine manufacturing facility".
Plans for the community include office, hotel, restaurant, retail, and "high-density residential" developments; not to mention parks and a trail system. Over 200 acres of entitled real estate opportunities will provide opportunities for companies of all sizes. The town center, ATLAS TEXAS, will consist of a hotel, conference center, and restaurants, located on Lake Atlas, which is one of several ponds located on the trail system. Construction on the town center is planned to start Spring 2015.
Aggieland’s proximity to Texas' major cities and within driving distance of 80% of the entire state population, the heart of the state is located here in Bryan-College Station. Just down the road from Texas A&M University, Texas A&M Health Science Center, and Easterwood Airport, this area has welcomingly taken on the name of the, "Texas A&M Biocorridor". ATLAS' location will provide unparalleled access to world-class researchers, professors, and students; not to mention potentially infinite business, job, and growth opportunities for residents, students, businesses, and Texas A&M.
