“With property values at $1.7 billion, and the CID’s continued investment in infrastructure updates, road improvements, landscaping and security, we hope to attract even more high-tech companies and high-end manufacturing businesses as members,” stated Gateway85 CID executive director Emory Morsberger. “In addition, we want to attract more developers interested in redeveloping catalyst sites within the district.”
