Bossier City National Cyber
Research Park Area
Lambert worked with the Bossier City National Cyber Research Park to provide strategic guidance to the planning team in their effort to refine the scale of the District and associated land use controls.
The National Cyber Research Park was developed by the State of Louisiana, Bossier Parish and City of Bossier with the aim of becoming the nation’s premier innovation hub for cyber security, nuclear deterrence research, and command control as well as weapon system development. The Park is within a stone’s throw of Barksdale Air Force Base, the headquarters for the United State’s Global Strike Command.
Lambert Advisory served as the economic and market advisor to the National Cyber Research Park District Update Plan. Lambert provided guidance on the scale of research and development investment likely to occur within the District over the next 10 or 15 years. Furthermore, Lambert’s objective was to understand what ancillary development is necessary or will be demanded (i.e. retail, restaurants, residential, hospitality, etc.) to support the core military advanced research and development investment. There were two primary tasks that were undertaken as part of Lambert’s overall analysis. First, was understanding Barksdale’s Air Force Base’s (AFB) mission vis-à-vis other bases which have similar scale of mission. Second, was completing a development evaluation of residential and commercial opportunities for the District based upon an understanding of the demand and scale of primary advanced manufacturing and research prospects.
