The Hankin Group is proud to sponsor the Innovation Center at Eagleview to encourage a dynamic community of entrepreneurs, to help Chester County and Pennsylvania attract and grow new businesses and to give back to the local community which has been home to the company and its employees for many years.

At the ICE, we support small life science and biotech companies by providing flexible space options and entrepreneurs and their companies. Located in suburban Chester County, PA, the ICE is a unique and innovative place offering:

  • Short term, flexible leases
  • Instant office or laboratory space for 1 to 15 +/- people
  • Complete with phone, high-speed internet & furniture
  • Presentation-ready conference and meeting room
  • Creative and dynamic environment with peer-to-peer networking opportunities
  • Room to grow without the hassle and expense of changing address and phone numbers*
  • Access to free “just-in-time” advice from i2n staff and board members

*Certain restrictions apply.

The ICE is also a “landing pad” for companies from other parts of the country — or the world. The ICE offers an easy, risk-free way to explore new markets, launch a test market, or set-up local operations without having to make long-term facility and location commitments before you’re ready. Our “landing pad” can help by providing:

  • Short-term office leases of 6 to 18 months
  • “Quick-connect” introduction to local resources and professionals for a smooth landing in new territory
  • Fully furnished facilities with no capital outlay or time-consuming decisions
  • Time to explore the area and focus on your new market initiative before making long-term commitments
  • Insight into local financial and business markets

The ICE is located at 665 Stockton Drive and is a 40,831 square foot building which presently contains over 17,000 square feet of chemistry laboratories and approximately 23,000 square feet of office space. While utilizing contemporary materials, the building’s architecture suggests a turn-of-the-century industrial facility. Located a short walk from Eagleview Town Center, this facility’s occupants can easily access numerous amenities including restaurants and shops.
