The site for Urbane424 is conveniently located in downtown Burlington only blocks from the Mississippi River with access to many local establishments. This 5+-story mixed-use building features 52 residential units, a combination of studio, 1 bedroom, and 2 bedroom units, along with over 3,100 square feet of commercial space. Two former buildings, including one owned by the City of Burlington, were purchased and demolished to make space for this beautiful new development. The project was awarded Iowa Economic Development Association's Workforce Housing Tax Credits and Iowa Brownfield/Grayfield Redevelopment Tax Credits. Features of Urbane424 include a building front with an urban street space and also quieter urban green space for a variety of living options. Courtyard facing units also capture specific views of the Mississippi River and bridge. Public green space is created in the open courtyard concept and extends the pedestrian zones of the city and to stitch this project into the vibrant activity of downtown. Micro retail spaces provide frequent points of entry for pedestrian activity with the opportunity for new retail ventures to start-up in smaller footprints.
