NASA Requests Proposals for Exploration Park Developer
NASA today issued a formal Request for Proposal (RFP) for the selection of a master developer for a 320-acre technology and commerce park at Kennedy Space Center.

NASA plans to negotiate a 50-year lease and development agreement, which could extend for up to 99 years, with the selected master developer.

NASA has also invited prospective tenants that desire occupancy in the initial phase of the park to formally express their interest to the agency.
