Description: 2251 Speakman Drive. Conc 1 SDS pt. Lots 32, 33, PL 718, pt. BLK A. Known at its origin in 1965 as the Sheridan Park Research Community, the Sheridan Science and Technology Park remains one of the very few research communities in the world initiated and built entirely by industry. The founding companies were Abitibi, AECL, Cominco Ltd., Dunlop Research Centre, Gulf Oil, Inco Limited, Mallory Batteries, and the Ontario Research Foundation. Sheridan Research Park has been identified as a Cultural Landscape because it is a planned business park that contains architecturally-significant structures with a cohesive appearance. All of the buildings are mid-rise and conform to a distinct visual character. This unique campus is associated with the "planned research park" movement. The park was intended to improve the productivity and creativity of those who worked there. Sheridan Research Park is one the country's first privately funded research parks; it established a precedent-setting model for similar planned facilities on university campuses and other private commercial/industrial developments across Canada. The Park is listed on the Heritage Register.
