A Village On The Hill

By  | 

MOLINE, Ill. (KWQC) — Times are changing on Sixth Street in Moline. A property once destined for foreclosure will soon be a new, state of the art retirement village.

Cabinet doors are being installed. Ceilings get a makeover. More than one hundred local laborers are busy with construction on the Overlook Village project. The thirty three million dollar project will house independent living, assisted living, and memory care units. All the units will be under one roof.

Russell Construction and Dial Retirement Communities are business partners on the project. The City of Moline also provided a tax incentive through an enterprise zone. The incentive in the form of sales tax rebates.

Overlook Village is scheduled to open in July. It will employ about seventy five people with an annual payroll and benefits of about two and a half million dollars.
