  • Developer seeks city incentives for project with commercial space, apartments on former Newcomb Hotel site

    Developer seeks city incentives for project with commercial space, apartments on former Newcomb Hotel site

    Tuesday, September 30 2014 8:50 AM EDT2014-09-30 12:50:12 GMT
    A Cedar Rapids, Iowa developer is proposing that a five-story mixed-use building be placed at the former site of the Newcomb Hotel at 400 Maine. However, it will require significant investment -- potentially $3 million -- from the downtown Quincy TIF district. Hobart Historic Restoration's $3.9 million proposed development, Newcomb Lofts, would have approximately 4,777 square feet of commercial space on the ground floor with 20 market-rate apartments on the four upper stories.
