The Crossing at KU

KU Innovation Park is currently planning and developing two additional phases, IV and V, to be finished in conjunction with the first phase of The Crossing at KU, a development project led by the KU Endowment Association. The Park will expand upon the research community from the University of Kansas, and The Crossing will offer places to eat, play and live.

KU Innovation Park provides an opportunity for founders and business owners to innovate alongside world-class researchers and gain access to assets at the University of Kansas.

In 15 years, our vision is to see the area fully developed with future phases of The Park and The Crossing while maintaining the surrounding natural landscape by association with the Native Prairie Restoration Project.
