7 New Single Family Construction Homes- 3rd Avenue, Rock Island
$2 Million Investment
Rock Island Economic Growth Corporation (GROWTH) and the City of Rock Island are partnering together to create the Garden District, seven single-family, new construction homes in downtown Rock Island, just north of Jackson Square.
This housing development will be unique only to downtown Rock Island. Homes will be built in an urban, downtown environment ranging in size from 1,400 to 1,600 square feet with sales prices starting at $149,900. Two of the seven units will be targeted towards live-work with down payment assistance available.
In 2011, GROWTH celebrated the completion of Jackson Square, an $8.8 million, adaptive reuse development that converted a former Brownfields site into an award-winning community asset. Now in 2015, GROWTH plans to build upon Jackson Square’s success with the Garden District, a $2 million new construction project, located on vacant land located just north of Jackson Square.
The Garden District will create a Planned Unit Development with shared common elements, such as an outdoor patio, picnic area, urban garden, dog park, and playground that can be used by homeowners of the Garden District and residents of Jackson Square.
The Garden District compliments the rise of economic development activity in the area surrounding Jackson Square, with nearly $20 million of business growth, expansion and investment planned and occurring within the Arsenal Gateway.
GROWTH is serving as the developer and GROWTH General Contracting LLC is serving as the general contractor..
