OKC Moving Forward With Innovation District

OKLAHOMA CITY - Oklahoma City is home to several thriving districts, and a new one is on the horizon. Located just east of the downtown area, this future hub for innovation is expected to offer more than just a place to work.

"It's a new economy in today's world, a new high tech economy," said Terry Taylor, with the Oklahoma Health Center Foundation.

Oklahoma wants to capture that economy and Oklahoma City is doing that through its emerging Innovation District.

"Here we are, right adjacent to downtown so we're lucky to build upon that geography," Taylor said.

The district encompasses 1.3 square miles east of downtown. Within its boundaries - lies an epicenter of health sciences and bio tech research facilities and tech startups, along with Automobile Alley.

"We wanted a place where companies, researchers, universities will all be near each other so they will have to bump into each other literally or figuratively and new ideas and jobs and opportunities will come out of that," said Kurt Foreman, Executive Vice President with the OKC Chamber of Commerce.

Hi exceptional blog! Does running a blog such as
this take a great deal of work? I have absolutely
no knowledge of computer programming however I had been hoping to start my own blog
in the near future. Anyhow, should you have any ideas or tips for new
blog owners please share. I understand this is off topic however I
just wanted to ask. Thanks!
