The idea of SciTech Scity began in 2015 when Jersey City Mayor Steven Fulop and the Jersey City Redevelopment Agency awarded Liberty Science Center with the redevelopment rights to 12.5 acres of land adjacent to LSC and Liberty State Park. Mayor Fulop challenged LSC CEO Paul Hoffman to develop a project that would be transformative for the region and further strengthen New Jersey as a leader in scientific and technological innovation.
SciTech Scity now consists of 30 acres of land. It is a truly unique endeavor that aims to build a campus (or "mini-city") for people and companies who come together to invent the future. The four pillars of the campus include:
Liberty Science Center is NJ's largest cultural institution and the largest interactive science center in the tri-state area with more than 750,000 guests every year
Liberty Science K-12 School will bring cutting edge science and technology education to Jersey City for students K-12
Edge Works is a complete reimagination of today's workplace with nearly 100k SF of research labs, private studios, open workspaces, and a conference center
Scholars Village will provide permanent residences for those working at or visiting SciTech Scity and student housing for STEM graduate students in the area
SciTech Scity LLC is solely owned by Liberty Science Center, a not-for-profit organization.
