Incyte Corp. will hold a public meeting on its expansion plans later this month.
The meeting is slated for March 25 at 6 p.m. at the Blue Ball Barn at Alapocas Run State Park.
The company plans to discuss the redevelopment of 1701 & 1703 Augustine Cut Off, adjacent to their existing corporate campus at the former Wanamaker store site.
The site was the former home of Campanella Auto & Tire Center and an adjacent office complex.
The proposed redevelopment calls for the construction of a new 183,000 square foot laboratory building and a two‐story parking deck as well as a connection with “Incyte’s existing campus, landscaping, stormwater management and the continuation of an eight‐foot multi‐use path along Augustine Cut Off, the announcement stated.
Incyte ’s design team is working with the New Castle County Department of Land Use regarding the design of the site and would like to share their proposed plan with the community, the announcement added.
The current campus underwent a major expansion as the pharmaceutical company continued to grow.
Incyte has seen sales for its Jakafi blood disease drug grow to the $1 billion a year mark, with studies seeking expanded uses.
The company is also working to build a research and development pipeline for other promising drugs.
The company did not respond to a request for further comment on the project.
