DAVENPORT, Iowa (AP) — A Davenport building partnership has announced a $50 million plan to create an urban community college campus and build housing downtown.

The Quad-City Times reports that Restoration St. Louis and Eastern Iowa Community Colleges are teaming up to bring a campus and 80 apartments to downtown Davenport. The project also includes restorations of the Capitol Theatre and the Kahl Building.

The Capitol Theatre will be transformed into a movie theater, while the Kahl Building will be renovated to house the apartment units.

The senior vice president of development for Restoration St. Louis says the project will provide amenities and retail locations that will make the downtown area more attractive.

Eastern Iowa’s board of trustees signed a letter of intent Tuesday to move forward with development.
