@Highland, Center of Excellence Facility, to be Hub that Attracts and Keeps Millennials

Construction of General Informatics’ tech innovation center @Highland, which began in October 2016, is expected to be complete in the forth quarter of the year.
The idea of @Highland is to have a place in Baton Rouge that is a center of excellence, and to create a ecosystem for creative companies to come together in once space with creative endeavors.
Mohit “Mo” Vij, General Informatics’ founder and CEO, is hoping the site will help retain residence to the Baton Rouge area. “I have kids,” said Vij. “I am always hearing young people say they want to move out of the state.” For him, @Highland will become a space for “creating excellence” that will make younger Baton Rouge residence like his children interested in staying.
While some amenities include a volley ball court and outdoor sitting areas, what he is hoping will attract prospective businesses is the access to Baton Rouge’s natural scenery. The park is situated around oak trees and along side Bluebonnet Swamp. “This property exposes the characteristics of the land,” said Vij. “We have swamp and land, and @Highland highlights that.”

The plans for the area include adding a sidewalk for exploring the area. They are hoping to extend the boardwalk up to the swamp.

According to Vij, the space has already attracted chefs, venture capitalists, and engineers. He does not want it to be perceived as just a business office. “We want this to be an iconic project that can stand up to forward thinking cities,” said Vij. He would like to show that Baton Rouge “can do something similar or even better.”
Because the facilities are not complete, those interested in touring the facility can do so virtually using 3D glasses at General Informatics.
