In 2023, the City purchased the vacant lot at 21 S. Linn St. with the intent to lead a mixed-use redevelopment of this prominent downtown corner through a public / private partnership. The project will be facilitated through a Request for Proposals process that identifies City goals and project objectives and invites project proposals from prospective partners.

Project objectives will be guided by the City Council Strategic Plan, Iowa City Downtown and Riverfront Crossings Master Plan, and the Iowa City Downtown District (ICDD) Strategic Plan. Example objectives include, but are not limited to the following examples:

  • Incorporates public benefit priorities such as affordable housing and environmentally sustainable building practices.
  • Generates long-term property tax revenue which will enable annual reinvestment in critical municipal and community services.

Project objectives will be further informed by additional public input. Public input on project objectives, such as types of uses and experiences desired, will be welcomed from all populations including those that frequent downtown and those who would like to engage more in our downtown community.
