In the not too distant future a block in River North could become a major hub for the digital health industry. Catalyst Health-Tech Innovation announced yesterday they would be opening a huge new facility in the neighborhood.
The new facility is intended to become a space that will bring together a wide variety of parties interested in digital health. Everyone from private companies, to government agencies, academic groups and nonprofits are being welcomed into the space, which is meant to encourage collaboration.
The new facility will take up an entire city block between 35th and 36th streets on Brighton Boulevard. It will be two blocks from a still-under-construction RTD station, and sit next door to Great Divide Brewing. Construction on the new facility is supposed to be complete in late 2017, and, when completed, the facility will be a massive 300,000 square feet.
So far, at least four companies have announced their intentions to move into the new space: Corvectra, Entrepy, Telespine and Premier Manufacturing. According to the Denver Post, 26 more tenants have signed on to the new development, but details of those additional tenants remains unknown.
Ironically, two fairly healthy companies already sit on the plot where this new development will take place — Happy Leaf Kombucha and The Urban Cyclist.
