Lawrenceville Tour with Deb Gross

Date posted: January 8, 2014

The neighborhood is becoming an established robotics and high-tech cluster

RIDC took newly-sworn-in Councilwoman Deb Gross and her chief of staff Nate Hanson on a tour of our properties in Lawrenceville. We were able to see Precision Therapeutic's state of the art lab space and the construction at the soon-to-be space of Carnegie Robotics. We are excited to have the councilwoman as our new partner in developing the high-tech and robotics cluster in the neighborhood.


Carnegie Robotics signed a lease with RIDC for the former Heppenstall building in 2013, and RIDC and Carnegie Robotics have been working to get the space ready.  Their build-out of the 30,000 square foot building is a $2 million project and will allow Carnegie Robotics room to manufacture and space for and office mezzanine. The company has taken space in the next-door Chocolate Factory during construction that should wrap up this summer. The company is a spin-out of CMU's National Robotics Engineering Center. Carnegie Robotics was spun out to help commercialize projects that were being developed at CMU and already has several government contracts.
