THE BUILDING

RUCKUS will anchor the Mass Ave Industrial Corridor at the Circle City Industrial Complex. It will be located along 10th Street at the nexus of the Monon Trail, Cultural Trail, and the new Pogues Run Trail. An extension of the Cultural Trail will run through the building. RUCKUS will consist of roughly 20,000 square feet of equipment, studio, and retail space. 

THE BASICS

RUCKUS will be part of a national movement toward entrepreneurship, technology, and start-up manufacturing. Local can now be global, and access to affordable, high-tech equipment, such as 3D printers, CNC routers, and laser cutters is making (and accelerating) the prototyping and fabrication of an incredible range of new locally-developed products.

 

With its proximity to strong university programs in art, design, and engineering, Indianapolis has a concentration of designers and makers. RUCKUS will provide these makers with the resources to develop their products and business right here in Indianapolis.

RUCKUS will be located at the southwest corner of the CIRCLE CITY INDUSTRIAL COMPLEX at 10th and Mass Ave, at the intersection of THE CULTURAL TRAIL, THE MONON TRAIL, and the new POGUES’ RUN TRAIL.

 

RUCKUS' key components are:

CO-WORKING SPACE & MAKERSPACE High speed internet, comfy chairs, and work tables, as well as all types of woodworking, metalworking, laser-cutting, printing, and sewing equipment.
