high tech industry

Here is what creates demand for High Tech Industry:

Low to no pollution.

Well educated, R$$ and R$$$ populations.

Placement near residential areas and parks.

It will take some time for demand to develop, but when it does, raise taxes on dirty industry to drive it away (you shouldn't really have dirty industry on the same city tile as residential; the two should be separate)

On a side not, I highly recommend that you download the Industry Doubler Mod (Look in the Top 10 mods thread), as the stock lots provide very few jobs, which creates the need to create sprawling industrial complexes. This mod helps you satisfy your high tech industrial demand more easily.

There have been quite a few threads about I-HT in the forums.

Please note that there's a bug concerning I-HT, not allowing R$$$ sims to work there!!! Fixing it requires merging the fix into aimcity_1.dat, which is a quite manual job (no installer will make it for you).

Take also a look at this thread (and my links at the bottom). You may want to consider other forms of development too.
