    Downtown Riverfront Gateway Begins Transformation

    (Davenport, IA) With a skillful swing of the wrecking ball on Wednesday, the vacant former hotel at 227 LeClaire St. in downtown Davenport began its transformation toward a bright future.  In the spring of 2014, the Downtown Davenport Partnership (DDP), a division of Quad Cities Chamber, recognized the importance of the long-challenged riverfront property and took a leadership role with its partner Demolition Davenport in acquiring and preparing the property for a private developer to reinvent the downtown gateway.

    Riverwatch LLC, led by local developers John Ruhl and John Carroll, was selected to redevelop the site following a request for proposals by the DDP Board of Directors.  A new vision was born known as Riverwatch Place, a $20 million-dollar multi-story office complex overlooking the Mississippi with a restaurant and retail component.  Riverwatch LLC will execute demolition and new construction of the proposed project.

    “Focused leadership and collaboration across the private and public sector brought this together,” said Kyle Carter Executive Director, DDP.  “I’m proud that our organization and its partners not only recognized an issue affecting the community, but took the risk and action necessary to solve it.  Like the Forrest Block or Blackhawk Hotel before it, we’re eager to take a very visible dilapidated property and transform it in to a symbol of downtown’s impressive momentum.”

    John Ruhl is also encouraged by the ongoing investment in the corridor.  “This project will create a lot of excitement in concert with the new YMCA Early Learning Center, riverfront park improvements, future YMCA, and redevelopment of the Wonder Bread and Harborview Buildings,” said Ruhl.  “Demolition of the current building and construction of Riverwatch Place will serve as a catalyst to further enhance this unique and highly visible downtown gateway.”

    The project also earned both state and local assistance to make construction financially feasible.  The state of Iowa awarded $837,876 in Brownfield Tax Credits to assist with environmental challenges, and the Davenport City Council approved up to $4.75 million in property tax reimbursements through Tax Increment Financing.

    Carter noted that much is yet to be done before the project is complete.  “Like all major projects, there will continue to be curveballs as progress unfolds, but we’re excited to work with John’s team to make a major improvement that the entire community will ultimately benefit from.”

    DDP and Demolition Davenport will remain stewards of the property until demolition is finished and the construction phase of Riverwatch Place begins.  Demolition is expected to be complete by the end of 2015, and new construction is slated to begin in spring 2016.


    Downtown Davenport Partnership (DDP), a division of the Quad Cities Chamber of Commerce, is a non-profit organization. As administrators of the downtown Self Supporting Municipal Improvement District (SSMID), DDP provides leadership and advocacy for downtown economic development, planning, cultural vitality, events, marketing, and clean-and-safe initiatives.

    Old-school video gamers share their passion at Analog Arcade Bar

    QC Times – It was his 8th birthday party, at a mall arcade in Peoria, that hooked Kyle Carter.

    “My mom rented out the entire Aladdin’s Castle. I remember specifically they brought the chains down (to the mall entrance) and it was dark in there,” Carter, now 34, recalled. “All my friends were there and I had birthday cake and $40 worth of tokens — which seemed like a fortune.

    “I will never forget how incredibly awesome that felt,” he said. “That really bit me at that point and I’ve never stopped loving it.”

    Stormwater management can be pretty, too

    QC Times – The city of Davenport has installed some new benches near a downtown coffee shop. They’re an attractive addition to the neighborhood’s landscape, but they’re really a lot more than that. The benches themselves have a good story of recycle/reuse, but their real purpose is to protect people from falling into a innovative stormwater management project.

    When a bench isn’t just a bench

    People frequenting downtown Davenport near 4th and Iowa streets may have noticed the arrival of nine sturdy wood benches along the sidewalks. The timber provides convenient sitting places for customers of the corner coffee shop or nearby apartment dwellers, but the truth is, the benches really are part of a $200,000 stormwater management project. Seating is a plus.

    $60M Redevelopment Project Underway

    A project that will change the landscape for one of the Quad Cities’ urban corridors is now underway. The Parker Building, one of the key properties included in the $60 million City Square project developed by Restoration St. Louis, is under construction.

    The first buildings to be redeveloped within City Square are the Parker, Putnam, and Center buildings, situated in the core of downtown Davenport on 2nd Street     between Main and Brady. The Parker building will add multiple floors of Class A office space and two floors of luxury residential apartments.

    “It’s a real pleasure to see construction in full-swing at Parker,” said Kyle Carter, Executive Director, Downtown Davenport Partnership (DDP). “City Square will    accelerate and fundamentally change the energy of our already vibrant downtown. DDP is proud to have played a role in putting this complex deal together, and    we’re excited to see Parker open in 2016 and the next phase of construction to begin after its completion.”

    Phase two of City Square will include an extension of Hotel Blackhawk via a new hotel known as The Blackhawk Suites within the Putnam building located at the   corner of 2nd & Main Streets. In addition, the adjacent Center Building will be renovated to provide a grocer, retail space, and additional amenities. Beyond the $60   million to be invested on the south side of the block, Restoration St. Louis has also partnered with Eastern Iowa Community College to plan a new urban campus in   the former First Federal and First Midwest bank buildings on the north side of the block, in conjunction with redeveloping the KAHL/Capitol Theatre building on 3rd Street.

    Wells Fargo Bank will become the office and retail anchor in the renovated Parker Building at
    104 W. 2nd St.
