It’s ambitious, but it’s reality. Adaptively reusing 1.3 million square feet of dilapidated factory and its surrounding community means aligning lots of people, organizations, and resources into one focused vision with the permission to believe.
The Renaissance District is redefining the South Bend Region. At the heart of the Renaissance District, the former Studebaker plant is being redeveloped into a mixed-use technology campus for our next generation of innovators to call home. With 1.3 million square feet of reborn industrial space surrounded by 80 blocks of downtown real estate, the Renaissance District is a marketplace and neighborhood for everyone. We’re not building just another office park. Together with our Partners, we are rebuilding an entire community.
This District is nothing new. It has a history all its own, dating all the way back to the origins of Studebaker in the mid 1800s. It has a story to tell - a story of prosperity, hardship, and hope. Our mission is to create stories in this District once again.
Live. Work. Play. It’s all here: Office, co-working, residential, retail, conference and entertainment space. Labs, high-tech manufacturing, data center and connectivity. Get in touch with us and find out where you fit in.
Beneath the Renaissance District lies the densest fiber corridor in the nation, and atop that sits the largest carrier hotel and data center in the region – Global Access Point. These provide the Renaissance District with a robust backbone for IT operations. Contact us for more information.
The top floor of the Renaissance District’s Building 84 will be dedicated to residential apartments overlooking downtown South Bend and the University of Notre Dame. Contact us for future prices and availability.
