Partners by Design is making space for makers. mHUB, a collaborative, trend-setting partnership between Catalyze and World Business Chicago is preparing to take the technology development scene by storm with its new home in River West. Previously the Motorola Mobility facility, the 63,000 square foot space comes equipped with state-of-the-art manufacturing machinery and high profile prototyping labs, and with the addition of data-driven design elements and next-level spatial planning, Partners is creating a venue to fuel innovation at every level of production.
A combination of open workspaces, private offices, and 12,000 square feet of manufacturing area, the design process will incorporate 10 laboratory spaces, an electronics lab, a CNC workshop, a wet lab, 3D-printing capabilities, and separate plastics, metals, and wood shops. Committed to investing in its new neighborhood, mHub will also feature classroom areas, educational programming, and networking events to build community connection and connect entrepreneurial engagement from the ground up. Building on the top-of-the-line infrastructure, the space aims to attract world-class talent, support an array of bold and creative endeavors, and serve as an incubator for the new generation of Chicago manufacturing.
