DAVENPORT, Iowa (KWQC) – Now that the longtime riverboat casino is gone, the City of Davenport is working to decide how to fill that riverfront space. The Davenport Public Works Dept. will hold a session Tues., Nov. 29, 2016 to hear details on proposals for the riverfront, including one from development company, Restoration St. Louis.
Over the weekend, the former Rhythm City Casino riverboat left it’s moorings and headed to Memphis, Tenn. where it will serve a new purpose. The casino itself moved to a land-based operation in northeast Davenport in June.
Restoration St. Louis plans to present its vision for the riverfront that includes a craft beer pub called the Dam Dock and Brew.
If the city council approves the project, the mayor says the city will try to link development to the river-based property.
Restoration St. Louis has made a name for itself with several recent downtown redevelopment projects including the Hotel Blackhawk and the Forrest Block building apartments.
