It has long been a prime piece of undeveloped property in the Stateline. In fact two years ago it was offered as land for a Rockford convention center and hotel complex. Those plans where put on the back burner when Mayor Morrissey was elected and put a convention center low on the priority list. Now the site has new life
Landmark development is expected to announce a $100 million facility southwest of the Riverside Drive / Interstate 90 interchange.
The location is just across the interstate from Sports Score 2 and the new Riverhawk’s stadium. The complex will contain Nike, Reebok and Liz Claiborne outlet stores and a host of others yet to be named.
More than 330,000 square feet of land will be used for the development which should support several hundred jobs.
