Goldman Family Block
1612-1624 2nd Avenue, Rock Island
5 Rental Units, 4 Commercial
$1.1 Million Investment
The Goldman Family Block Lofts project compliments over $12 million in investment to buildings along the 2nd Avenue Corridor. The development is named after the Goldman Family who has been extremely committed to the Rock Island community and the downtown for decades.
During the 1980’s when downtown Rock Island was going through difficult economic times and businesses were closing, the Goldman’s purchased and maintained many downtown buildings to house and showcase their furniture items.
Rehab of the units was completed in 2013. Work included demolition of one dilapidated structure and rehabilitation of the existing buildings. Four apartments were created on the upper floors and the overall façade was greatly enhanced.
