The development company behind the 265-acre Rock Run Crossings project, which is designed to bring new stores, restaurants, entertainment venues and hotels to an area at the crossing of Interstates 55 and 80, has confirmed Joliet Mayor Bob O’Dekirk's timetable.

"Based upon the reported progress that [the Illinois Department of Transportation] is making with the interchange and related roadway network improvements, Cullinan Properties has started some initial clearing activities on the site, including the preparation for the demolition of the vacated house and barn structures, to coincide with the dates as shared by the mayor," said Anaise Berry, director of marketing and communications for the East Peoria-based developer.

Initial openings are anticipated in the fall of 2020, Berry said.

The project is planned as a mixed-use development combining retail and residential components.

"The mixed-use development will create thousands of jobs and stimulate economic development, as well as provide increased property and sales tax revenue and a visual gateway to Joliet that will encourage further regional development," Berry said.

The tenants' names will be released as leases are signed, she said.
