A city of 6,100, Stewartville sits at the intersection of Interstate 90 / US Hwy 63 / MN Hwy 30 in southeast Minnesota and just 10 miles south of downtown Rochester and the world famous Mayo Clinic.

Stewartville is one freeway exit south of Rochester International Airport which is utilized by 320,0000 travelers annually, including some of the world’s wealthiest and most influential people as they and their families seek treatment at Mayo Clinic.

Destination Medical Center

Stewartville has a front row seat for the biggest growth in Minnesota history. Over the next 20 years, the creation of 35,000 – 45,000 jobs are anticipated because of an initiative by Mayo Clinic to create a “Destination Medical Center.” This initiative is expected to draw $6 billion in private investment; the State of Minnesota has already committed $585 million. This investment is estimated to result in a county population of about 220,000 and about 7 million visitors annually (http://www.dmc.mn for more information).

Developers are already moving forward with plans for about 1,000 new hotel rooms in addition to the current 5,400 and plans are underway for multiple new high-rise buildings in downtown Rochester.

This proximity to a large growing population, access to transportation routes, and available land makes Stewartville ripe for many types of new retail, industrial, distribution, and manufacturing facilities.
