About The Mills at Riverbend Commons

Welcome to The Mills at Riverbend Commons!

The Mills at Riverbend Commons, the first building under the Riverbend Commons Master Plan, is a student housing deal developed through a public private partnership with the City of Moline. These commons are designed to complement Western Illinois University – Quad Cities’ on-going conversion to a 4 year institution and to assemble an entirely new neighborhood within the City of Moline. The Mills represents a paradigm shift for WIU-QC and provides a demand driver for the Riverbend Commons project. The achievement of this development will have a extraordinary impact not only on the anticipated growth of WIU-QC but on the growth and vitality of the City of Moline and the Quad Cities as a whole.

Located immediately alongside to WIU-QC, The Mills consists of 240 student beds within 90 student living suites, in addition to providing food, lifestyle, fitness and healthcare within the 20,000 square foot of retail space along its River Drive elevation. The design is constructed with the student in mind and in alignment with the City of Moline’s Riverfront Renaissance plan. 3C’s design promotes interaction among students and residents passing through the neighborhood. All three resident floors connect to the social and study areas. The first floor of the building features combined retail and academic space as well as community amenities that will include a fitness center, social and study areas, mail room, and large outdoor courtyard.

3C took an authentic approach to addressing the Quad Cities student housing needs by conducting extensive market research, surveys, and a complete site analysis. Given its immediate proximity to WIU-QC, The Mills at Riverbend Commons will serve the University’s needs and be an integral part of a remarkable mixed-use high-density urban Riverbend Commons neighborhood.

Riverbend Commons is designed to incorporate sustainable features including: green roofs, energy efficient HVAC and indoor lighting systems, low-consumption indoor fixtures, high-performing irrigation, green housekeeping, recycling, bicycle storage, and access to Moline’s high-speed multi-modal station. The Mills at Riverbend Commons is being developed by an qualified, proven development team that has most importantly considerable administrative and financial support from the City of Moline. Groundbreaking for the Mills is anticipated in Q4/ 2013 with delivery in time for WIU-QC’s fall semester in Q3/2014.
