A Beautiful, Modern Place to live

Located in Peoria’s Warehouse District

The Center proudly welcomes visitors and residents to Peoria’s trendy, up-and-coming Warehouse District. Just minutes away from I-74, this vibrant, mixed-use, historical renovation project offers over 25 residential apartment units, over 40,000 square feet of commercial tenant spaces, and one of the largest parking offerings in the area. A varied array of high-quality dining, unique retail shops, a contemporary grocery market, fitness studios, event complexes, a rock-climbing gym, Dozer Park Stadium, the very popular Water Street, and the Illinois Riverfront Park are all within walking distance.

The development’s one-bedroom, two-bedroom, and studio apartment designs, experienced-based commercial entertainment and retail, and pedestrian-oriented feel directly reflect the culture, style, and desires of the demographic in the area.

Commercial Tenant Space

Each commercial tenant space boasts large storefront windows, high ceilings, as well as exposed brick walls, sliding fire doors, and other unique architectural details. Each space has street frontage and a pedestrian entry directly from either Adams Street, Elm Street, and Jefferson Street.

The Center will house between 15 and 20 commercial tenants. Spaces range from 1,000 square feet to 8,000 square feet, depending on the needs of the businesses.

We are in the early stages of the leasing process. Thus far, prospective tenants include a distillery, specialty retail shops, a salon & spa, a grocery market & food hall, as well as several bars and restaurants.

The Center is looking to welcome additional commercial tenants who would fit well with the culture of the area — tenants who value quality and customer experience. We are looking for tenants who offer something unique and fun to area patrons and residents.

Food Hall & Fresh Market

The Center will house and operate its own public Warehouse District Food Hall & Fresh Market reminiscent of Milwaukee Public Market, Pike Place Public Market in Seattle, and Midtown Global Market in Minneapolis.

This Food Hall & Market will showcase a mix of restaurant-style and marketplace-style vendors. The restaurant-style vendors will offer ready-made cuisine, drinks, and treats, perfect for lunch or dinner! The marketplace-style vendors will provide area residents and patrons access to locally grown/sourced raw fruits & vegetables, spices, meat & seafood, and other seasonal home goods (such as flowers in the spring, pumpkins in the fall, wreaths at Christmastime, etc.).

In total, there will be 15 – 20 vendors, each occupying their own 6’ – 15’ kiosk spaces, complete with a counter, a POS system, and a display case. The restaurant-type vendors, who will serve ready-made food, will also have room for kitchen equipment in their space. Each of the vendor stations will have a custom ‘look’ and unique signage, personalized to its resident tenant. The Market will also include shared indoor & outdoor dining tables (similar to a food court).

During the warmer months of the year, The Market will expand beyond its walls. In addition to the year-round indoor vendors and dining space, exterior seating and outdoor farmer’s-market-style vendor spaces will also be available in the pedestrian alleyway adjacent to the Market’s front entry.

The Food Hall & Market space will be leased by Baldovin Development Co., and then sub-leased to the vendors at below-market rates, (a portion as a flat rent and the other portion as a percentage of sales). We believe this is the best way to give fledgling businesses the chance to “get their feet under them.”

Adams and Oak

String lights over SW Adams Street will connect The Center with its sister development, Adams and Oak.

Block Party

The Night Life

The Center will work in conjunction with the City of Peoria and surrounding businesses to organize various communal outdoor events on warm weekends. During which, the street at the 800 Adams St. block will be opened up to pedestrians. This will make room for live bands to serenade patrons as they stroll freely throughout all of the commercial businesses along this vehicular-turned-pedestrian corridor. These nights will be promoted and marketed in the community ahead of time as one large block party – fostering excitement, sociability, and patronage of the area.

Other nighttime restaurant and bars nearby include Sugar Wood Fire Bistro, Thyme Kitchen & Craft Beer, Kelleher’s Irish Pub & Eatery, Rhodell Brewery, Martini’s, The Blue Duck Barbecue Tavern, Crafted DIY Studio & Bar, Rhythm Kitchen, Ulrich’s Rebellion Room, and Mack’s Bar. Several clubs, the ballpark, and other amenities are also all within walking distance.
