PETERSBURG, Ind. (Inside INdiana Business) — Crews in Pike County are coming close to the finish line on construction of the $2.5 million Elmer Buchta Tech Center near Petersburg.

The Pike County Economic Development Center says the facility, which will include a coworking space, makerspace and business incubator, is set to open in early January.

The EDC says final installation of the exterior aluminum panels has begun and crews are continuing electric, painting and other work ahead of the opening.

The center is being funded in part by a $2 million grant from the federal Economic Development Administration. According to the EDC, the goal of the facility is to “enable regional talent to foster ideas to develop startup concepts and launch new businesses.”
