Brookings recently published an article referencing Cortex as a new landscape of innovation – a complementary urban model where “leading-edge anchor institutions and companies cluster and connect with start-ups, business incubators and accelerators.”  Located between the historic Central West End and Forest Park Southeast neighborhoods is the Cortex Innovation Community.  This once abandoned urban wasteland has been transformed into a new vibrant and performative landscape.  A critical key to success was to create a walkable and safe public environment that would attract and inspire future innovators to this new landscape.  Learn how this transformative landscape has taken shape from design conception to planning for the care and growth of this new public space.
