Peoria Riverfront Retail Study



Peoria Riverfront Retail Study

Peoria, Illinois

 

 

Teska Associates, Inc. (TAI) and Valerie S. Kretchmer Associates, Inc. (VSKA) prepared a list of potential retailers, restaurants and services that could be candidates for the Peoria Riverfront.  The attached list is based on the following criteria:

 

  • Size of available buildings and sites

 

  • Location of stores and restaurants that are considered competitive

 

  • Businesses known to be expanding or possibly expanding in Illinois based on information from retail brokers and the Retail Tenant Directory

 

  • Store location criteria (e.g., population within a given distance and incomes of core customers)

 

  • Retail gaps identified in the market study

 

The list includes some convenience-oriented retailers and restaurants that cater to the downtown employee and resident population, as well as destination retailers and restaurants that will complement the planned Caterpillar Visitor Center, museum and IMAX theater. 

 

Several caveats are in order when reviewing this list. 

 

  • While a given store may indicate that it is looking at sites in Illinois, it may not be looking at sites in the Peoria metro area.  Direct inquiries to the retailers are needed to see if the greater Peoria area is a target for expansion. 

 

  • Few retailers are actually seeking out new locations as of Spring 2009 even if they have indicated in the Retail Tenant Directory that they are looking at sites for expansion.

 

  • Most retailers require spaces to be in rent-ready condition.

 

  • Additional criteria relative to space configuration (store frontage) and traffic (average daily traffic counts on a main road) may also apply.

 

A summary spreadsheet with the names and sizes of potential tenants by category is attached.  Detailed contact information is in a separate Excel file.

 

 

We also suggest that the City of Peoria and property owners check out downtown Kansas City, MO (www.downtownkc.org) to learn more about the successful redevelopment of the Kansas City Power and Light District, a restaurant and entertainment district adjacent to the downtown office core and Sprint Center Arena (www.powerandlightdistrict.com).  In addition to this project, there are many examples of adaptive re-use of former industrial and office buildings near the Missouri River, in the downtown office core and in districts just south of downtown.  While on a larger scale than the Peoria riverfront, many ideas could be replicated in Peoria.  An excellent map that depicts the various downtown Kansas City sub-districts is attached.
