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

    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.
