Bettendorf is an affluent community, which has averaged 170 new home builds annually for the past five years. The population is on the rise, the schools are top notch, and the commercial redevelopment opportunities are expansive. Currently underway is the construction of the new Interstate 74 Bridge over the Mississippi River. This $1.4 billion project is serving as a catalyst for redevelopment of the riverfront. While the community has frontline access to major highway, rail and river transportation, Bettendorf's riverfront is primed for commercial and mixed use developments. This is evident by the current $80 million land based casino project that is located in the heart of the downtown/riverfront corridor. Restaurant, retail and commercial opportunities abound, and the next five years in Bettendorf will see a level of redevelopment that has not been in this region for many years. The City of Bettendorf is prepared to invest in its future and encourages developers to consider this community as it evolves in the coming years.
