Renew Moline played a vital role in the redevelopment and relocation of Watermark Corners. The building was incredibly dated and needed extensive renovation. Restoration on three of the buildings owned by the Trimble family was assisted by architect Fred Ebeling and included the opening of interior walls between the buildings for their Watermark Corners.
From Watermark Corners: “Our search for the perfect location brought us to the John Deere Commons, with the newly opened MARK of the Quad Cities (now the i wireless Center), the John Deere Pavilion and the Radisson on John Deere Commons. The energy of the development in this area immediately captured our attention, and before long, we purchased the buildings on the corner of River Drive and 15th Street.
The buildings were not ready to be occupied, however. They had been unoccupied and abandoned for years, and it took a full year of extensive renovation before we could open WaterMark.”
WaterMark Corners officially opened on September 15, 1999, and it’s been a whirlwind of fun ever since!
