Growing business and communities

For years, CRANDIC has partnered with state and local organizations to bring new business and good-paying jobs to eastern Iowa.

Working with our parent company, Alliant Energy, we have again positioned the State for significant economic development activity by creating the Big Cedar Industrial Center. This new 1,300-acre site in southwest Cedar Rapids is certified as Iowa's only Mega Site. Big Cedar offers direct rail access via CRANDIC, and is situated next to the Cedar Rapids Logistics Park and less than two miles from the Eastern Iowa Airport. 

Looking for a smaller site? We have identified several Alliant Energy and privately owned sites for consideration — all served by CRANDIC.
