The PIE Innovation Center was designed to create innovative student experiences through collaboration with business, industry and nonprofit organizations changing learning pathways, providing experiential learning in STEM, embedded work-based learning experiences and promotion of design thinking.

PIE is an old textile mill that sat vacant since World War II. The approximately 280,000SF project was a full-scale renovation to the shell, followed by multiple buildout areas. As part of the shell construction, corridors, fire walls and an elevator were added for future tenants.
