A mystery company has proposed to build a hub tech hub in Bloomington, across the street from the Mall of America.

The City of Bloomington's Planning Commission will hold a hearing on Thursday to discuss a change of use for the land at 2501, 2601 and 2701 American Blvd. E. and 2600 Lindau Lane, next to 

That's because an unnamed "high-tech company" is "looking to establish a regional headquarters in the South Loop," according to a staff report released ahead of the meeting.

Eventually, the tech campus could sprawl over 600,000 square feet, though the first phase of the project would be an 185,000 square foot building that comprises "highbay storage, a robot automated warehouse ... distribution, production, and office uses."

Office use would eventually become the main focus of the campus in phase 2, which would see a multi-story office built on the site by 2025, with another following in 2030.

Judging by the plans, the existing Fairfield Inn & Suites by Marriott Hotel at the northwestern corner of the lot would stay in place, as would the Townplace Suites in the southwest corner.

Finance & Commerce reports that provided the land amendment is approved by the city, the company behind the proposal would next have to submit a development plan.

Then they would have to negotiate the purchase of the land with the Bloomington Port Authority.

The Business Journals notes that there could be competition for the land, reporting last week that another unnamed company is interested in building a golf facility in the Bloomington South Loop district.
