Spokane, WA

“Creative by Nature”

In the South Landing of the University District, the Catalyst building and Scott Morris Center for Energy Innovation will build an atmosphere of exciting innovation to help attract the types of cutting-edge companies and organizations that are vital for the Inland Northwest’s next economy. This is a truly unique opportunity to leverage the fast-growing campuses and connect the University District with Spokane’s vital Downtown.

Spokane is fast becoming one of the Pacific Northwest’s most sought-after business locations. Given Spokane is the second largest city in Washington State after Seattle, the reasons are plentiful. Spokane offers a highly-skilled, highly-educated workforce. Several universities continue to prepare tomorrow’s workforce. The location on I-90, the international airport, and major rail lines make the city a historic transportation hub. Also, Spokane’s mid-city size, lifestyle, reasonable cost of living, and housing are attracting an influx of diverse workers.

Most of all, Spokane’s surroundings—the wide-open nature, rivers, mountains, parks, lakes and woods—add value that are not found in many parts of the country. Learn more…

Linking to Spokane’s Future

Spokane has a talented workforce with many universities in the area. Spokane’s regional economy is also well-rounded and diversified, with a strong emphasis in manufacturing, logistics, aerospace, life sciences, education and research, agribusiness, and professional services. The University District, South Landing, Catalyst building, and Scott Morris Center for Energy and Innovation are preparing the next generation of highly skilled workers needed by these industries. Spokane is creating a “smart city” by bringing together leaders in utility infrastructure, smart metering and communications, higher education, energy efficiency, population health, and urban planning.
