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.
