Local developer Todd Raufeisen says that construction of the Dock Restaurant will start in the late Summer or early Fall.
In September of 2013, Raufeisen said that construction would likely start in the spring of 2014. Raufeisen wants to make a four-story, $25 million restaurant and office development. It would have a platform that takes people into the site, just in case it floods.
City leaders also know that Rhythm City will be moving off the water and onto land. Casino Developer Dan Kehl hopes to have his new casino in place by the fall of 2015. By that point, the Rhythm City Casino should be off of Davenport’s riverfront.
The riverfront developments will be discussed during the second meeting of Davenport’s RiverVision. The first meeting was held back in November of 2013. There will be two different sessions Thursday, February 13th, 2014. One starts at noon. The other starts at 6 p.m. Both are being held at the Hotel Blackhawk in Davenport.
