About the Ion & Innovation District

The Ion & Innovation District

The Ion and Innovation District will introduce a new kind of urban district to Houston, prioritizing street life, public space and a mix of uses that embrace technology, community and sustainability.

The 16-acre Ion and Innovation District is centrally located in Midtown, Houston. The Innovation District, in collaboration with the City of Houston and community stakeholders, will build a series of community benefits to enhance Houston’s technology infrastructure, with a specific focus on inclusive, measurable impactful talent, business and community development.

The Ion and Innovation District’s project goals include strengthening Houston’s economic resiliency and competitiveness by attracting and retaining innovative talent, companies and institutions. This project will foster an inclusive and welcoming neighborhood that offers economic opportunities for all Houstonians. We do this by connecting, building and creating meaningful impacts for the community and project, together.
