In early 2018, Peoria created the Real Estate Development Office (REDO) to focus entirely on creating new commercial and industrial development opportunities in the city. Scott Whyte heads the office as the Real Estate Development Officer, and Dina Mathias serves as Real Estate Development Project Manager.

REDO works closely with key city departments including Planning, Engineering, Public Works as well as the development community to bring transformative new opportunities to the city. 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 city’s business attraction goals. Incorporating pedestrian connectivity, place making, and public gathering areas into new development opportunities, as well as undertaking extensive pre-development work on strategic parcels will be the primary focus of the office.

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.
