A new feature is being added to the plans for Rock Run Crossings, which is billed as a future destination center that would attract shoppers, diners, moviegoers and more from a region spanning into the Chicago suburbs and central Illinois –warehouses.

The Joliet City Council on Tuesday approved several measures related to the project, including tax incentives and a rezoning of about 17% of the site for industrial development. The entire project is 263 acres located at the crossroads of Interstates 55 and 80, a location seen as a boon for future development but currently lacking access from the interstates.

The council approved the rezoning of 59 acres previously slated for general business development, which are now zoned for light industrial. The industrial development would go on the east end of the property nearest to the existing Rock Run Business Park, which largely consists of warehouses now.
