Kim Blickenstaff puts money in multiple area projects in 2019

(HOI) – In Peoria, one man has put his money behind a lot of area projects this year.

That man is Kim Blickenstaff.

He bought a 50 percent stake in redeveloping the Peoria armory.

He’s also developing 200 acres near Spring Bay, turning it into a resort and retreat area featuring fishing and hunting.

A new performing arts center located in the old Peoria Heights library opened this past year.

And in May, Blickenstaff broke ground on the site of a future 55 room boutique-style atrium hotel in the Heights, expected to be done in 2020.
