TechWorks Campus

TechWorks Campus is a 30-acre advanced manufacturing, research & development, innovation, education, commercial and manufacturing center. Located in downtown Waterloo, the campus is comprised of 20 acres of development sites and 300,000 square feet of flex space and is a place for innovation and development. The 300,000 square feet of existing flex space is divided among two historic John Deere manufacturing buildings: Tech 1 and Tech II.

The Tech I building is divided between six floors and is home to the University of Northern Iowa Metal Casting Additive Manufacturing Center and Design Lab, Hawkeye Community College Design Lab, the Iowa Advanced Manufacturing Network Hub, and Cedar Valley Makerspace. Four floors are suitable for light industrial manufacturing space. There are 6 labs available for lease on the 3rd floor.

Tech II will include within its six floors a Courtyard by Marriott hotel, fine dining establishment, and the John Deere Regional Training Center.

The Green@TechWorks is part of the larger 30-acre TechWorks campus. In addition to the Tech l and Tech II buildings, the campus includes parcels suitable for larger scale manufacturing facilities and two retail lots. TechWorks is the first technology park of its kind in Iowa to combine world-class business amenities within a Brownfield industrial redevelopment project.

In addition, a new John Deere Tractor & Engine Museum is also located on the west side of the campus.

TechWorks Campus is just steps to the Cedar Valley Recreation Trails, entertainment & museum districts, and a variety of Riverloop District amenities.

TechWorks Campus is owned and operated by the Greater Cedar Valley Alliance & Chamber.
