Peoria Announces New Commercial Real Estate Development Office

Peoria is pleased to announce the creation of the Office of Real Estate Development, focused entirely on assisting new commercial and industrial development. Scott Whyte, Peoria’s current Economic Development Services Director, will head the new office as Real Estate Development Officer, and Dina Mathias will be serving as Real Estate Development Project Manager. David Valenzuela, currently Chief Business Attraction Officer, will serve as Acting Economic Development Director through the transition period.

This Office will work with the development community to bring transformative new opportunities to the city and work closely with the Economic Development Services Department and other key City departments. As part of implementing the city's Economic Development Implementation Strategy (EDIS), new modern office, industrial, retail, entertainment, and restaurant spaces are needed to meet the business attraction goals of the city. Incorporating pedestrian connectivity, place making, and public gathering areas into new development opportunities, as well as undertaking extensive pre-development work on key strategic parcels will also be a focus.

For developers and brokers wanting to be a part of the next generation of new commercial and industrial development in Peoria, contact Mr. Whyte at (623) 773-7738.
