NEW MEXICO, Albuquerque

Plans released.
Project Manager, Daniel Dietz, hired May 2016. 

They also have a linked in page, a twitter account and a facebook page under "Innovation ABQ"

In early September 2014 they extended the invitation to private developers as described in THIS article. 

ABQ Mayor creates a culture innovation by throwing the right kind of parties: Tech Fiesta.

I want to call your attention to a common issue with this kind of planning. The last line of the article states:
The moderator of Geltmore, Inc:
"We've been so focused on building buildings," he told the commercial real estate development group. "If we don't build the economy, we're not going to build very many buildings."

Innovation districts are networks and community. Those have to be built also or else the buildings sit idle.
