The Landmark Recreation Center is located at 3225 N. Dries Lane.

A major piece of Peoria property is going up for auction.

According to a news release, the Peoria Forrest Hill Development Company has listed the Landmark Recreation Center at 3225 N. Dries Lane on the website Crexi. Potential buyers can register to bid through the online listing until the auction on Sep. 12. The bidding starts at $1.25 million.

The 4.74 acre property, with more than 175,000 square feet of building, includes restaurants, bowling, a movie theater, stores and fitness facilities.

The property has been in the current owners' families for the past 40 years. They said they’re hoping to assist a new owner with an “easy transition that maintains the quality of the facility.”

The property also will continue to be offered as a traditional sale through September.

Potential buyers with questions can contact Amber Neal at Maloof Realty.
