Overton Incubator Information


221 E. 49th Street


Anthony Overton Elementary School, built in 1963 and designed by Perkins and Will was one of 50 schools that were closed in 2013 citing budget cuts, under-enrollment, and low performance. Washington Park Development Group has since purchased the school, and through collaborations with artists, designers, and small businesses, has transformed the school grounds into an experimental hub, referred to as the Overton Incubator that is intended to serve the community to support creative entrepreneurship in business, technology and design.
