Master Plan

Welcome to the Tri-Cities Research District! We are a 2,875 acre research park located in Richland, Washington. Our plan is to connect our land grant university, WSU Tri-Cities to Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL) campus creating one neighborhood that demonstrates clean energy technologies and further develops bioscience products and processes. WSU Tri-Cities has been named a Center of Excellence in Alternative Jet Fuels and Environment by the Federal Aviation Administration. PNNL is the top employer in eastern Washington with over 4,200 employees doing work in homeland security, environment, computational sciences and energy. The TCRD offers over 325 acres of open property incorporated into a master plan creating a creative and inviting atmosphere so that students, faculty, researchers and companies can collaborate. We also have 1,341 acres of industrial property targeted for clean energy manufacturing and research fueling 150+ acres. Key facilities include WSU Tri-Cities Wine Science Center and Energy Northwest’s Applied Process Engineering Laboratory (APEL) a high tech incubator facility.
