New Oneida Landing news


I got an email today from JJ Condon, the developer of this condo project. The website, OneidaLanding.com, has been updated with some new renderings, site plan, and floor plans. He said that pricing should be up early next week. He also mentioned that he's looking at redeveloping the vacant One River Place at Oneida and River Drive.

Despite my misgivings about the location, something like this is a good thing for Davenport, and I think its a pretty great looking building. Check out the site for more views and such.

Great to see he's going to work on the Oneida Landing building too : )
Looks like a nice building.

So it's OK for the rich and privileged in our community to build a big building blocking the river front...but no one else? QCI you are SO biased!

I think my favorite line in the Oneida website is when it talks about the roof, and how it's designed for "filtering harmful runoff into the Mississippi."

Kinda made me cringe.

Why? Is that bad grammar?

I'm not opposed to buildings on the riverfront. Years back I wrote a letter to the editor defending River Gulf and Builders' right to stay. I've come to see both sides of that argument, but I still believe we have to remember that riverfront industry is the reason Davenport exists.

QCI, I stand corrected! I agree River Gulf should have been left alone as well. Makes no sense to chase away tax base all the time, and I am assuming they will find a way to tiff this???

I don't think so. I haven't heard about any incentives at all, but maybe they're just being secretively debated.

Will the current at-grade railroad crossing remain? If so, what happens when the two-mile long coal and ethanol trains start moving through? And what about the whistles? Is someone going to pay the kind of money the developer is expecting if they have to listen to train whistles outside their back door? I just hope when the people who move in here start complaining about the sound or the wait, someone reminds them that the train track was there first.
