WELCOME

University Town Center (“UTC”) is envisioned to be: “A regional mixed-use destination retail and life-style project.
The University Town Center project is a 900+ acre destination mixed-use retail and entertainment project that will have a substantial impact on the St. Louis Metropolitan area and beyond. It will be located in Glen Carbon, Madison County, Illinois, at the intersection of I-270 and Route 157 & I-255 and Route 162 – less than two (2) miles from Southern Illinois University of Edwardsville, 4.5 miles from Southwestern Illinois College, “The Sam Wolf Granite City Campus”, and 21 miles from Lewis and Clark Community College.
Economic Impact
According to an analysis from PGAV Urban Consulting, in the first year of operation, UTC is expected to generate nearly half a million dollars ($496,000) in state income taxes and more than $3.2 million by Year 10. Property taxes at full operation are expected to be $16 million and escalate yearly thereafter. Taxes from Building materials is estimated at $34 million. The project is expected to generate a total of $15.5 million in state income taxes during the construction phases. All phases combined would account for a total economic construction impact (direct, indirect and induced) of over $1.5 billion and increase local income by $569 million. (Department of Economics and Finance School of Business Southern Illinois University of Edwardsville) The project is estimated to create 10,000 construction jobs and 3,100 full-time equivalent jobs. Local schools will substantially benefit from this project. Once the development is complete, the local schools are projected to receive more than $9,500,000 a year through Property Taxes.

I-255 is a bypass route of Interstate 55 near St. Louis, Missouri and together with I-270, it forms a loop around the St. Louis Metropolitan area and connects into I-70, I-64, I-55 and I-44.
