2207-2209 7th Avenue, Rock Island
4 Owner Occupied
Murphy Lofts is a rare local landmark that was redeveloped to create four unique and spacious condominiums.
This project is located in the historic Broadway neighborhood district and rests near a prime gateway to Rock Island’s downtown arts and entertainment district.
When a for-profit developer was unable to complete the construction, the building and property were acquired by GROWTH through a reduced purchase price.
GROWTH secured funding through Wells Fargo, completed the renovation, and subsequently sold all of the units.

Below: Although appearing to be one single entity, the buildings that make up the Star Block are three separate structures owned between GROWTH and DARI.
Below Left: A Rock Island landmark, the Star Block's three-dimensional star in the peak and the painted word “BLOCK” are original to the building. Many historical features will be preserved in the Star Block development. Post-card of the Star Block buildings along 2nd Avenue, early 1900’s.
