Downtown Peoria is getting several new additions in one historic building.

The former Riley's Cupcakes at 315 Main Street will host a Downtown Peoria Visitor's Center, the Peoria Made Retail Incubator, a podcast studio and a learning lab for entrepreneurs. 

Peoria Innovation Alliance Executive Director Jake Hamann says it will help generate more foot traffic in the heart of the newly-designated Peoria Innovation District. 

The Peoria Made building will host the Greater Peoria Homecoming on November 29th as part of Yule Like Peoria. It opens to the general public on December 2nd.
