PEORIA, Ill. — Caterpillar Inc. announced today that it is keeping its global headquarters in downtown Peoria and expanding its corporate campus in what it called a re-commitment to the central Illinois city.

CEO Doug Oberhelman told a crowd of about 200 people that after two years of study, the $55 billion global construction equipment maker will modernize its riverfront complex to include a three-tower building. The company said it will expand the site to 31 acres and six blocks and add amenities and innovative workspaces to "retain and attract the finest talent in the world."
