Farnsworth Group, a nationwide engineering and architectural firm, said last week it will be relocating its Peoria consulting office to Peoria's Warehouse District.
The Farnsworth Group office at 7707 N. Knoxville Ave. will move midyear to the former Murray Building at the corner of Walnut and Water streets. Farnsworth Group will be one of the first corporate entities housed in Peoria’s emerging Warehouse District following the city’s renewed economic support for the area.
“We couldn’t be more excited to be moving into Peoria’s Warehouse District,” Farnsworth Group President and CEO Karen Jensen said. “We hope to be one of the first of many new businesses that want to call the Warehouse District their home. We envision a bright future for this area of Peoria - one that will generate economic opportunities and vibrant places for people to live, work and recreate. This is an exciting time for our company as well as the city.”
Farnsworth Group's nearly 80 employees will move into the new office on the second floor of the four-story Murray Building, which is being renovated to accommodate a mix of retail and residential units.
