The city of Poway invites life-science businesses to evaluate our community as a potential site for their next expansion or relocation opportunity.
In today's corporate climate, businesses will undoubtedly be offered incentives by agencies across the region, but there are several reasons why Poway surpasses the rest, including its central location, quality of life and continuum of housing.
As an employer, consider Poway's location and amenities as a benefit to your operations and employees. Strategically located in central San Diego County, the Poway Business Park provides an ideal commuter location, with easy freeway access from Interstate 15 to the west, the 67 corridor to the east, and minutes from San Diego's port and international airport.
In addition, with the completion of State Route 56, Poway benefits from direct access to the coastal residential communities and life science companies of La Jolla and the University Towne Centre area -- not to mention nearby universities, such as the University of California at San Diego, and the world-renowned research facilities, Scripps and Salk institutes.
Since incorporation, the Poway City Council has fostered a high quality of life, beginning with tremendous land areas that include designated open space, developed parklands, beautiful Lake Poway Recreational Area, and Blue Sky Ecological Reserve.
With approximately 80 miles of natural trails in Poway, hiking, biking and horseback riding opportunities are in abundance for your employees. Furthermore, Poway maintains the lowest crime rate in the region and the award-winning Poway Unified School District.
Our community is truly the ideal place for your business and most valuable resources, your employees.
Poway offers a continuum of affordable housing opportunities for working families. Our goal is to achieve quality housing at an affordable price for residents of all incomes, and the city is committed to provide local housing for area employers. The housing supply in our community truly is a continuum of opportunities, capped by unparalleled, multi-million dollar executive estate homes in The Heritage development.
In many ways, the Poway Business Park is a regional hub for high-tech and for those businesses who stand out in their respective industries. Encompassing nearly 900 acres, the business park includes global leaders such as Toppan, Kontron and cutting-edge businesses like SpaceDev.
Furthermore, Poway Business Park is home to nationally-recognized companies such as First American Credco, GEICO Direct, SYSCO Food Services and Hunter Douglas Fabrications. For these reasons, Poway is the perfect location for the life sciences industry, and we have several development opportunities available to you should you choose to call us home.
