Beloit

Gateway Business Park (Certified Site)

Beloit, WI

Just north of the Wisconsin border, with a population over 37,000, the city of Beloit has all the big city amenities without the hassle of navigating a big city. Located along Interstate 39/90, Beloit is conveniently located near the City of Chicago to the southeast along Interstate 90, while Madison, Wisconsin is less than an hour’s drive to the north. The city is directly connected to Milwaukee via Interstate Highway 43, which merges with Interstate 39/90 in Beloit, forming a strategic transportation network in the nation’s heartland.

RESTORED RIVERFRONT COMMUNITY

Beloit’s City Center is located along the Rock River. And as a 2011 Winner of the Great American Main Street, the community’s downtown revitalization efforts—including a restored riverfront, river walk bike paths and creative new development projects—Beloit has renewed its urban edge while maintaining its small town accessibility.

GATEWAY BUSINESS PARK

The new Gateway Business Park is easily accessible on the east side of the Interstate. Two sites in Gateway Business Park have been certified: a 70- and 84-acre site.
