Innovation and Technology District
The purpose of the Innovation and Technology District is to create an environment where technology–based industry and other related entrepreneurial enterprises can be successful. The area will appeal to companies seeking high visibility, direct transit access, the ability to live and work in the same area, and access to a number of amenities. The mix of uses within the District, including biotechnology companies, sustainable industries, medical offices, hospitals and educational institutions, will be anchored by the K-State Olathe Innovation Campus and Kansas Bioscience Park supported by surrounding neighborhoods. Additional uses include retail located along the transit corridor, intended to serve the needs of the workforce. Development in this area should embody transit-oriented design principles.
