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.
