George Mason University is planning to build a digital innovation campus in Arlington, Va. Creating a collaborative hub for research, education, and entrepreneurship, the project includes the demolition of an existing structure and the construction of a 400,000-sf mixed-use facility and parking garage. Strategically sited next to Amazon's new headquarters, the building will house the School of Computing, the Institute for Digital InnovAtion (IDIA), and corporate R&D labs with co-working spaces. George Mason will also establish the Cyber Living Innovation Lab in the adjacent Vernon Smith Hall, which will provide 3,000 sf of dedicated space for cybersecurity research, training, and experiential learning.
