Iowa City calls for more office space
Published by Billy on Saturday, May 07 2011 at 1:08 PM
The face of downtown Iowa City is set for change. The big college town’s downtown has been a focus for college students for years, bringing bars and restaurants to focus. With recent closures, city council is exploring other options such as high-end retail and office space.
Seeking “balance” to downtown, the council is looking to rezone various buildings to open it up to a different type of market, opening the city up to more office and retail space. Development is an important step for such ideas.
According to the Eastern Iowa Government, “A current example is the proposal from developer Marc Moen to convert the former Vito’s bar into retail and office space. The council is expected to vote Tuesday on whether to give Moen a $250,000 grant for the project.”
Rezoning will begin this summer. Ideas for development have been opened to the public as well.
