Cat headquarters to remain in Peoria, new design revealed

By |  February 20, 2015

After completing a multiyear study focused on modernizing its headquarters, Caterpillar Inc. reaffirmed that its headquarters will remain in Peoria, Ill. The company also revealed a new design that will eventually span 31 acres on the city’s riverfront, which will include a three-tower building located in the heart of a six-block campus.

“Caterpillar’s roots in the Peoria area run deep, and this year we celebrate 90 years as a company—a perfect time to share our plans of where we plan to be anchored as we continue to build, develop and power the world,” says Caterpillar Chairman and CEO Doug Oberhelman. “This campus represents an investment in both our people and community, with such features as collaborative work areas, improved technology, a more energy-efficient design, green space and an expanded showcase of our historical equipment, along with food and retail shops.”

Construction for this multiyear project will begin after 2015. The six-block campus will include a headquarters building consisting of three office towers with parking structures; an energy center; green space, walking and biking paths, food, and retail options and employee amenities; and a historic equipment display across the street from the Caterpillar Visitors Center.

About 22,600 employees work at Caterpillar’s headquarters in Peoria, and a display containing a scale model and renderings of the campus is available for viewing in the lobby of the Caterpillar Visitors Center in Peoria.
