Davenport city leaders want to take something old and turn it into something new.

In their effort to revive the riverfront, Davenport Mayor Bill Gluba will hold a press conference at 10am on Monday, April 16th, 2012 to announce a marketing initiative to re-open and re-develop The Dock.

The Dock has been around for decades, but floods and a fire eventually shut it down in 2003. The city, through its Levee Improvement Commission, put up a "For Lease" sign on the old riverfront restaurant in March and is currently looking for qualified developers.

WQAD be at the press conference and will give you an inside look at the building on News 8 at 5, 6, and 10 and also on WQAD.com.
