Located in the Greenville area of Wilmington, Chestnut Run Innovation & Science Park is four miles west of Central Wilmington, DE, and just ¼ mile south of Barley Mill Plaza, which is currently developing over 110 residential units and commercial spaces, including the area's first Wegmans supermarket.

MRA will utilize and enhance the existing infrastructure to create state of the art life science laboratories, scientific research facilities, and Class A office space. Planned campus amenities include a hotel, fitness center, conference space, an outdoor amphitheater, and accommodations for food services including restaurants and eateries.
"We are excited to be back in Delaware with such an incredible opportunity, and grateful to be at the helm of such an impactful project, Our vision for CRISP will set a new standard for innovative campus redevelopment in the region, as we believe it will become Delaware's leading biotechnology and science hub, while also providing an engaging community experience."
