Our vision for Electric Works is built on three key components:

Mixed-use Development

Simply put, the historic buildings are our canvas. This bold, adaptive re-use of the campus will maximize the facility’s density of existing structures and offer a broad array of uses – including innovation / education, residential, commercial, community and hospitality. It will be a highly walkable, accessible place.

Innovation / Energy / Culture

Through our activation and re-use of existing buildings on campus – combined with creative, diverse programming and activities – our aim is to create a world-class quality of place built on a foundation of innovation, energy and culture.

Public / Private Partnership

Projects this big and bold don’t get done alone; indeed, the private and public sectors each bring unique tools, resources and support that, when leveraged strategically and collaboratively, turn developments like these from dream to reality. As such, a unique and collaborative partnership will drive the development of Electric Works. While we are fortunate to benefit from incredible initial public support, it’s important to note that private investment – from local, regional and national levels – will be the largest component of Electric Works throughout the redevelopment process.
