In addition to the 40,000 square feet of office space designed for several data technology companies, the project contains a variety of high performance immersion environments including a 200-seat auditorium, two teaching conference rooms and a 3-D visualization cube (or CAVE). The cube is the first total immersion environment of its kind in the state, and one of only a handful in the nation.
