Tech Town is a 40-acre (16 ha) district developed in downtown Dayton, Ohio, that is located near Fifth Third Field. Tech Town was one of ten "brownfields" in the Dayton area, and is designed to attract technology-based firms to Dayton and revitalize the downtown area. Tech Town's first major lab was opened in September 2009. Tech Town will be a mixed-use development to promote the creation of a mixed use neighborhood (single use campus) that supports/leverages the functions of daily life: employment, recreation, retail, civic and educational opportunities. Tech Town will encompass approximately 400,000 square feet (37,000 m2) of office and research space and accommodate up to 2,500 jobs once completed.
Famous quotes containing the word town:
“If I am to be a thoroughfare, I prefer that it be of the mountain brooks, the Parnassian streams, and not the town sewers. There is inspiration, that gossip which comes to the ear of the attentive mind from the courts of heaven. There is the profane and stale revelation of the barroom and the police court. The same ear is fitted to receive both communications. Only the character of the hearer determines to which it shall be open, and to which closed.”
—Henry David Thoreau (18171862)
