Location

Gateway lies within 500 miles of one-third of the U.S. population and within 1,500 miles of 90 percent of the people of North America.  It borders the intersection of two uncongested interstate highways, I-270 and I-255, in Madison County, IL — in the eastern portion of the St. Louis metropolitan area. It is 15 minutes from downtown St. Louis; 19 miles from the region's major airport, Lambert St. Louis International; and close to three regional airports.

At 2,300 acres, there is plenty of room to grow at Gateway, creating cost-efficiencies by accommodating expansion on-site.

In addition, the park already has infrastructure in place to meet needs far into the future. Gateway provides high-capacity service for electric, natural gas, water, sewer, and telecommunications, making the park suitable for many different industrial uses. All roads in the park are designed to interstate standards, with 40-ton vehicle rating.

"In 2002, Unilever underwent a supply-chain restructuring and realized that it needed a regional distribution center in the Midwest ... It became evident that the St. Louis area and, in particular, Gateway Commerce Center, was the ideal location."
