Innovation Districts are geographic areas where leadingedge anchor institutions and companies cluster and connect with start-ups, business incubators, and ...and accelerators. They are also physically compact, transit-accessible, and technically-wired, and offer mixed-use housing, office, and retail. Innovation districts bring together a diverse population looking for better places to live, work, and play, inducing an eclectic mix of housing, jobs, and amenities in a walkable community. In 2018, Mesa hosted two Brookings Institution officials who visited Mesa and found that Mesa was well poised to develop an innovation district. Mesa began construction on a new state of the art building which will house Arizona State University's Sidney Poiter New American Film School. This program will serve as the anchor research institution for the Downtown Innovation District. The ASU Sidney Poitier New American Film School is a three-story, approximately 117, 795 square-foot academic building with 1, 500 square-feet of commercial space, located at the northwest corner of Pepper Street and Centennial Way, that will house programs offered by the Herberger Institute for Design and the Arts related to digital and sensory technology, experiential design, gaming, media arts, film production and entrepreneurial development and support. These programs will utilize augmented reality, virtual reality and 3D modeling and visualization to develop technology with the potential to impact industries as diverse as health care, aerospace, manufacturing and entertainment. ASU will offer 25 annual scholarships for Mesa residents. The ground floor will contain a large exhibition gallery, screening theaters and a social café. The upper floors will include a mix of production studios, fabrication labs, flexible classrooms and innovative spaces for collaborations with community and industry. Unique to this building will be a 2, 800 square foot enhanced immersion studio where users can create augmented realities and map virtual spaces onto physical environments. In addition to the primary academic programs, a number of co-curricular programs are planned to amplify the student experience and connect the facility's programs to the larger innovation district. So far, those programs include Entrepreneurship + Innovation and FilmSpark. The project budget is $73.5 million. Other projects of note in the Innovation District include: 1.)
