“Fall of the Wall” celebrates UF Innovation Hub’s new wing


    University of Florida Innovation Hub entrepreneurs came together Friday to commemorate the “Fall of The Wall,” a symbolic ceremony that celebrated the upcoming demolition of a wall that separates its current facility and the hub’s new wing.

    The new wing, which will open Jan. 2, will double the size of the hub, bringing its total footprint to around 100,000 square feet, said Mark Long, director of incubation services for UF.

    Long said the new wing will include around 90 new office spaces, 12 labs, 10 light manufacturing spaces and some “collision spaces,” which are work areas where people can get together to brainstorm and collaborate in a relaxed setting.
