Governor Kim Reynolds announces the 730-acre industrial park offers growth opportunities in Ames

Alliant Energy’s Prairie View Industrial Center has become our latest Growth Site to reach certification as a Super Park. The independent, third-party certification was conducted by nationally recognized firm Quest Site Solutions. The certification will save large industrial prospects several months of time and money by having various environmental surveys and archaeological studies already completed. Our site certification program is performed in the spirit of full disclosure, to reduce the risk a company might face when determining whether the site is a good fit.

Prairie View Industrial Center is centrally located just east of Interstate 35 and north of four-lane U.S. Highway 30. Nearly one-quarter of the U.S. population is within a day’s drive of the Super Park. The Union Pacific Railroad provides service via a double track, adjacent to the property, that runs east-to-west and connects to the main line.

Prairie View’s location allows tenants immediate access to one of North America’s premiere research institutions, Iowa State University. The land-grant university has over 36,000 students with more than 9,500 engineering students, and nearly 5,400 enrolled in the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences.
