Urban Land Institute Final Report - I-74 Corridor


Renew Moline announces the release of the final report completed by the Urban Land Institute (ULI), for future redevelopment possibilities in the I-74 Corridor. Renew Moline, along with the City of Moline, The Deere Foundation, and MetroLINK contributed to fund technical assistance by ULI to develop a strategy surrounding the future I-74 redevelopment area. Three overarching areas of opportunity were identified:   residential development, connecting the city to the river and creating an arts district. 

To complete the report, The Urban Land Institute convened a panel of development experts in a variety of disciplines, including retail market assessment, housing development, finance, economic/community development and urban design.  The Panel was chaired by Rick Dishnica, President of The Dishnica Company, LLC, and infill housing and investment company.  Other panel members were based in various locations of the United States, more about the panel can be found by clicking here. The Panel was overseen by Tom Eitler, Senior Vice President of Advisory Services for ULI North America.  

The Advisory Panel was posed a series of questions about the I-74 redevelopment area in downtown Moline, addressing matters such as future redevelopment sites, opportunities to connect to the River, and governance structures to fulfill the vision.  

Mayor of Moline, Sangeetha Rayapati said, “I am very excited by the big ideas that ULI shared with us and the ways to get this done. I am in full alignment with dreaming big and finding ways to make it happen.”

The final report can be seen on ULI’s website at
