Purdue Technology Center NWI

"The Studio" Co-Working Space – Office Space – Lab Space – Certified Technology Park




The 60,000 square-foot Purdue Technology Center in the Purdue Research Park of Northwest Indiana is the park’s flagship technology center. Created in 2004, it is modeled after Purdue Research Foundation’s successful incubation program in West Lafayette. It provides reasonably priced, flexible incubation space as well as shared office services to a variety of businesses. The Center is a two-story structure and is compliant with all federal, state and local regulations.

The Center and Park are centrally located within The Region with great access to highways, hotels, restaurants, child care facilities, shopping and a comprehensive array of healthcare professionals.  Located less than an hour from downtown Chicago, 45 miles from Midway airport and 60 miles from O’Hare and only a couple hours from Indianapolis.

The Center offers a variety of amenities at no additional charge including ample parking, meeting and conference management assistance with three well appointed conference rooms of varying sizes, lunch room with free coffee, outdoor picnic area and a managed mail room. For companies that receive pallet-size deliveries, the Center offers a scissor lift for unloading and loading as well as a pallet jack and a door that opens wide enough to accept the pallet load.

The local Purdue Research Foundation management team connects firms to Purdue University’s intellectual reserves at Purdue Northwest, Purdue University satellite campus in Hammond, and its main campus in West Lafayette.  The business acceleration services are accompanied by complimentary or low-cost professional services, the latter of which are provided to all Technology Center and  park-based companies.



Purdue Research Foundation teamed up with Indiana-based Holladay Properties to create its second high-tech cluster for Northwest Indiana and Chicago. The 386-acre AmeriPlex at the Crossroads research park is a master-planned, AT&T Fiber Ready and Certified Technology Park. Covenants are designed to ensure consistency in appearance and quality of construction helping maintain the value of all investments.

The Park provides the perfect setting and accommodations for general office space, medical facilities, retailers, large-scale distribution and light manufacturing. Walking trails and natural habitats crisscross the Park for tenants to enjoy.

Northwest Indiana is a superior location for business and industry due to its competitive tax guidelines and relatively inexpensive property costs.  For example, corporate state income tax, worker’s compensation and unemployment costs are 30 percent below Illinois. In addition, the Park is within a day’s drive of 80 percent of the U.S. population.
