A great (sustainable) place to do business…

Site Selection magazine recently ranked the State of Illinois as the top-ranked state in the nation for sustainability. More info here: https://t.co/9wcErgU1sx?amp=1

Jordan Abudayyeh, spokesperson for IL Governor J.B. Pritzker, spoke recently about Site Selection’s #1 ranking of Illinois, based on a number of environmental factors.

Site Selection magazine publishes “information for expansion planning decision-makers,” according to its website, and Abudayyeh said the top ranking is “an important selling point to potential businesses looking to put roots down in a state that demonstrates its commitment to the environment and provides them opportunities to contribute to a clean energy future.”

Pangea Development Company’s core mission includes an environment and design pillar so every Pangea project is done in a such a way to minimize impact and altering of the natural ecosystems. We applaud the State of Illinois on its efforts in these critical areas and for the great national press exposure.

The Hope of the Future…

As the State of Illinois continues to move forward toward the Phase 5 re-opening, all of us Pangea Development Company anxiously await the return to some sense of normalcy. It’s been an unbelievably challenging last 12 months for all but there is hope on the horizon. Spring (and the new construction season) is already upon us and each day brings renewed hope for the future of our great country and the State of Illinois. Families are getting out and about, schools are reopening and businesses are pressing forward. All great signs of better days ahead!!

Bigger and better…

Please find the following link to the article that appeared recently in the Edwardsville Intelligencer highlighting Pangea Development’s two
mixed-use commercial developments in Edwardsville, IL: The Pointe and Park North (formerly Pin Oak Plaza).

Both sites are located on the west side of the Interstate 55 and IL Highway 143 Interchange. The Pointe is located on the north side of IL 143 and now encompasses an additional 84 acres made possible through a partnership with Gori Realtors. And with a 14-acre entertainment complex (w/ 115 jobs) being proposed for the SW corner of the 95-acre Park North development, things are certainly looking even bigger and better for the future of the Interchange.

Spring has (almost) sprung!!!

March is rapidly approaching and with it baseball season. Go Cards!!! On the local scene, the City of Edwardsville recently announced the grand opening date for the new $13M Plummer Family Sports Park. The ceremony will take place at the grand pavilion at 4 p.m. Friday, March 27th.

The Plummer Family Sports Park is located at 7757 Goshen Road in Edwardsville, IL and will encompass 83-acres of softball, baseball and soccer fields as well as numerous pickleball courts and community park space.

In Full Swing (almost)…..

On June 16th, Edwardsville city officials along with numerous local sports teams, citizens, other dignitaries and member of the press, gathered on the site of the new Plummer Family Sports Park to officially break ground on the 78+ acre development.  World-class athletic facilities, all-access ball fields, public playgrounds and a multi-use concession/guest services facility are all planned.  The Park will be located directly adjacent to and border Pangea Development’s newest 95+ acre commercial development, Pin Oak Plaza.

Mayor Patton thanked several prominent donors to the Park, including J.F. Electric, The Bank of Springfield, and the Ebbets Fields Home Owners Association.  The Mayor also spoke about the “Better Place to Play Campaign” that continues to be a critical source of local donations and grant funds for the Plummer Family Sports Park and beyond.

Sports Park Groundbreaking

500 & Counting…..

Kudos to the City of Edwardsville, Madison County, Maryville and Pontoon Beach, IL for attracting a major tech-industry powerhouse expansion by World Wide Technology at the Gateway Commerce Center in Edwardsville, IL.  Over 500 new jobs will be added in addition to two new 1-million-square-foot buildings being developed by TriStar (see link below).  The WWT announcement comes on the heels of the news of a new transmodal logistics facility being planned in Jersey County, IL that will employ over 1,000 and represent a private investment of over $500M.  Both these and more exciting developments make Southwestern Illinois a great place to do business!!!
