UC to transform 1st Cincinnati Sears store into $16M innovation center

The University of Cincinnati will renovate the university’s Campus Services Building, originally a Sears, Roebuck and Co. department store, into a $16 million research accelerator.

UC’s Board of Trustees approved funding for the project on Tuesday morning. The building is expected to help foster entrepreneurial innovation for UC by providing space for startup companies born from UC-developed technologies.
