Eagle View Biotech Park

Southern Gateway

As part of the Southern Gateway Plan, the City of Peoria plans the redevelopment of the Eagle View area – bounded by the I-474, the Illinois River, and Adams Street. The site has excellent access to the River, Rail, and I-474.

The area is in an enterprise zone, and in a TIF. The City will assist private sector developers to elevate and improve the site. Darst and Clark will be improved, and a new entryway bridge will be constructed from Adams Street into the site

Logical users of the park include plants that need direct access to the River, rail, and interstate. The City is working to attract quality investors to this park.

A large open space along the River is planned. The park is an excellent area for viewing eagles as well as for fishing and hiking.

A quality streetscape and a revitalization of commercial buildings along Adams Street is also part of this plan.
