A German sensor-maker is moving forward with a $100 million technology campus in Bloomington that will eventually bring 700 new jobs to the city — with an annual average salary of $81,000.

Driving the news: The company, Sick USA, already has an operation in Bloomington, but has been working on plans for a new manufacturing and office campus just east of the Mall of America.

  • The project would be built in four phases over 14 years.
  • The city will tap into tax-increment financing and liquor taxes to provide up to $30 million in financial assistance, primarily for a potential parking ramp, according to Finance & Commerce.

What's next: Pending city approvals, Sick plans to break ground in May on the first phase, a one-story, 120,000-square-foot building.
