About the OKC innovation district

OKC's emerging innovation district currently encompasses about 1.3 square miles east of downtown -- roughly between NE 13-16th Streets to the north and NE 4th to the south and Robinson and Lottie Avenues to the west and east. It crosses Broadway/Interstate 235 and includes Automobile Alley in addition to numerous institutions located within the boundaries. 

The Brookings Institution and Project for Public Spaces have recently completed an 18-month study of Oklahoma City’s emerging innovation district, an area encompassing the Oklahoma Health Center and Automobile Alley. This work, which will focus on the district’s economic strengths and quality of place, is part of the Bass Initiative on Innovation and Placemaking, a joint initiative the two organizations launched in late 2015.

This thriving area surrounding the Oklahoma Health Center is ripe for new development and has demonstrated success in incubating startup businesses. The city’s bioscience sector that has clustered in that area offers a strong anchor point for future development, and Oklahoma City already has shown its ability to work together to re-imagine some of its urban areas.
