16 Tech is an urban innovation district being developed in the historic Riverside neighborhood and within the Indiana Avenue Cultural District on the northwestern edge of downtown Indianapolis. Here, where Fall Creek meets the White River, innovators and entrepreneurs in the fields of life sciences, technology, advanced manufacturing, and engineering will come together to leverage their varied skill sets, draw inspiration from the region’s top-ranking research universities and global corporations, and channel their combined creative energy to plant the seeds for Central Indiana’s future economic growth.
