The Campus

The 110-acre site of Highlands Center occupies a point of singular beauty on the Outer Cape. It is approximately 12 miles southeast of Provincetown and two hours from Boston and Providence. Depending upon reuse, 25 to 45 buildings with a total of approximately 75,000 to 135,000 square feet of indoor space are available for redevelopment.

Two buildings being completed by the National Park Service are the Atlantic Research Center field station lab and classroom space for visiting scientists and students, a part of a nationwide network of federally funded research centers. Buildings currently in use at the site are the National Park Service North Atlantic Coastal Laboratory, the Town of Truro Native Plant Test Nursery, and the Highlands Center Coastal Science Observatory.
