Phoenix Unveils Innovation District: 'PHX Core'

Phoenix has unveiled what it’s dubbing an "innovation district" in the city.

It’s called "PHX Core" and encompasses parts of downtown and the warehouse district. City officials say they want to create a critical mass of entrepreneurs and innovators in the area.

Christine Mackay, Phoenix’s community and economic development director, joined The Show to talk about the project.

Mark Brodie is a co-host of The Show, KJZZ’s locally produced news magazine. Since starting at KJZZ in 2002, Brodie has been a host, reporter and producer, including several years covering the Arizona Legislature, based at the Capitol.
