Crews will soon break ground on what will become the largest building in Davenport.

Sterilite Corporation, the largest plastics housewares company in North America, will construct a 2.5 million square foot manufacturing and distribution center on 160 acres at Northwest Boulevard and I-80.

Davenport Council members on Wednesday night approved the rezoning of the land, thereby clearing the way for construction to begin on a facility estimated to cost $73 million.

“This is one of the largest – if not the largest – new economic development projects in Davenport in decades,” says Davenport Mayor Frank Klipsch.

An exact groundbreaking date is not yet known, although Klipsch says it will be sometime this spring.

Sterilite says the plant, which will be finished in early 2018, will employ 500 people within five years.
