MCHS-Austin Foundation donates land to Austin Port Authority
At its April 28 regular meeting, the Austin Port Authority accepted a donation of two acres of land within the Creekside Business Park from the Mayo Clinic Health System – Austin Foundation. The gift will allow the Port Authority to plan for future growth needs in the business park area.
“We are excited about the growth the City of Austin is experiencing, including the construction of the Nu-Tek BioSciences manufacturing complex in the Creekside Business Park,” says Jerry McCarthy, Austin Port Authority president. “With Mayo’s donation of the neighboring two-acre parcel, we can plan for future expansion by Nu-Tek or accommodate other businesses who choose to locate in Austin. We appreciate Mayo Clinic Health System’s contribution to the health and economic vitality of our city.”
Mayo Clinic Health System – Austin Foundation president Sally Baker also welcomed the collaboration to strengthen Austin’s business community. “We are fortunate to have new companies building in Austin, and the Mayo Clinic Health System-Austin Foundation is pleased to be able to provide more land for future expansion in the business park,” she said. “Everyone benefits when the city, local employers and area residents work together to welcome new businesses and create job opportunities to help our city grow.”
