Mississippi Lofts

I was able to walk through the Mississippi Lofts Monday, so here are some images from downtown Davenport's newest residential option. While they are mostly limited-income apartments, there are 4 market rate units. I believe all 4 of those are on the 10th floor of the 10 story building. The lobby is my favorite part, especially the elevator doors and the arrow that points to the floor the elevator is currently at. To the right is a closeup of the elevator door detail.

As you can see, work is still ongoing. However, from what I was told the top few floors should be ready for move-in within the week. The number for the leasing office is (309) 644-1137. Parking is provided in the RiverCenter ramp across the street, which should please those of you that worry about our city parking ramps going empty. I'm sure parking manager Tom Flaherty was happy to make this deal with the Mississippi Lofts. The apartments themselves seem very nice, and I've got some images of them below.
Talk about a nice urban view, the Mississippi Hotel is pretty much in the heart of downtown Davenport. This shot and the 2 below were taken in the model apartment, which is one of the market rate units.

Many, if not all, of the bedrooms have French doors, and the kitchens seemed very nice as well.

The view to the South towards the Lock and Dam, and the view to the West down 3rd street. I believe both of these were taken from the 10th floor.

There is also a community room on the first floor that will include a TV and a fireplace. You can see it through the windows as you drive past on 3rd Street. Overall this was a very cool project to walk through, and bringing 60+ more apartments to the downtown should really help push us towards the critical mass where restaurants and retailers begin to follow residents downtown.

Wow, what a great lobby. The new streetscape along Harrison could of been better. There's only one streetlight along that part and it should've matched better of what was up the street.

Shouldn't that be Brady instead of Harrison and isn't the west side of the building all part of the Adler? I keep seeing semis parked there any time they have a show.
And only FOUR market rate apartments? That seems awful low for that many units maybe the others are on a sliding scale?

There are no apartments in the Brady Street wing, although corner units in the 3rd Street wing do have windows on that side.

You all need to understnad that low income is really not that low. These apartments will go anywhere from $540 to $685.00 and higher. They are lofts, so they are individuals not families. SO, we are subsidizing middle class housing really. Which , I have no issue with. FYI QCI. I believe stats have shown that if you have families who are low income clustered togehter you have higher crime and trouble. But, that is not the case here. It is at C-stone and Horizon homes, etc.

I screwed up the one way streets. But my point the streetscape in front of the building could have had more interest, besides just one decorative streetlight.

I bet they are waiting for the dumpster to leave before bringing in the planters that line most of the street.

i really think if the owner of the place get his head out and put some money into the place instead trying raise rent he would if out have better people in there buying antiques that have no bearing on the building and get rid of bug fixing the roof i still would still be there also get rid of the drugs traffic that goes on in there
