Innovation Mile

Innovation Mile

PROJECT: Innovation Mile will be a 1-mile-long, master-planned business district along 141st Street between Olio Road and Prairie Baptist Road. The development will encompass 200 acres and include commercial space designed for innovative companies. Innovation Mile will target companies in advanced manufacturing, medical technology, life sciences, wholesale trade and professional technical or financial services.

TIMELINE: Innovation Mile may take 10 years to fully complete, but companies may begin to break ground as soon as 2023. 

SCOPE: The project is still in the early conceptual stages, but the city hopes the district will spur about $500 million in private investment in the area. It also will be a great tool for the city to market itself to potential businesses.
