Alot of people say Peoria is Caterpillar's town. And now it part of the downtown actually is. Yesterday CAT announced that they have purchased the "Peoria Professional Building" next to their headquarters in the 200 block of Main street.
CAT already owns the Chase building and the rest of the block as well. According to CAT officials, the purchase gives the company "greater flexibility in having ample and available workspace to accommodate our employees as needed in the future."
