Marion Enterprise Center

The Marion Enterprise Center (MEC) is the premier general industrial park in the Cedar Rapids metro. The certified park features fully developed and preliminary platted lots, allowing companies to easily select lot size and location. Individual lots range in size from four to 38 acres. All infrastructure including electric, water, storm sewer, sanitary sewer, fiber and natural gas are installed and ready for quick connection. Due diligence requirements and studies including environmental, geo-tech boring, wetland and archaeological reports have been completed and are available upon request.

The MEC is bordered by two, four-lane highways (151 on the north and 13 to the west) with quick access to America’s Interstate Highway system. Internal park roads are built to accommodate long trucks. The MEC immediately adjoins the 4,000 ft. Marion Airport. The Eastern Iowa Aiport, a general service commercial airport is within 20 minutes. The park includes bike and walking trails, deep water pond, LED lighting and native plantings to ensure the best environment for employees. Fiber infrastructure also provides direct connectivity to a world class data center that offers an environment for the highest speed and most demanding data users. The publicly owned, redundant and looped data ring provides a competitive advantage over other data rich environments.
