Renew Moline played a vital role in the redevelopment and relocation of Watermark Corners. The building was incredibly dated and needed extensive renovation. Restoration on three of the buildings owned by the Trimble family was assisted by architect Fred Ebeling and included the opening of interior walls between the buildings for their Watermark Corners.
From Watermark Corners: Our search for the perfect location brought us to the John Deere Commons, with the newly opened MARK of the Quad Cities (now the i wireless Center), the John Deere Pavilion and the Radisson on John Deere Commons. The energy of the development in this area immediately captured our attention, and before long, we purchased the buildings on the corner of River Drive and 15th Street.
The buildings were not ready to be occupied, however. They had been unoccupied and abandoned for years, and it took a full year of extensive renovation before we could open WaterMark.
WaterMark Corners officially opened on September 15, 1999, and it’s been a whirlwind of fun ever since!
Early Concept Rendering
Renew Moline's successful collaboration with local, state and federal government agencies has resulted in a nearly $400 million investment in renovation and newly built properties in Moline's downtown, riverfront area. And more is planned!
These investments have created jobs and returned energy to the old downtown. Over 2,000 people now work full time in downtown and nearly 600 fill part-time roles. Approximately half of these jobs have been created by the redevelopment that has taken place so far. And more than 2,000 construction jobs have resulted from the projects now in place.
