About the Quad Cities Area

Moline is a small community of 45,000 residents that offers perks of large-metropolitan living. It is indeed a part of the larger Quad Cities, which is a metro area of 450,000. As one of the Quad Cities, we're settled alongside a broad bluff between the Mississippi River and Rock River banks. The views are some of the best you'll find - including the view from our office, just blocks from the water along the Great River Trail.

Moline has undergone a fantastic transformation, investing $250 million in redevelopment and revitalization of its riverfront and downtown. (Shive-Hattery is the proud designer of the Moline Centre Streetscape Master Plan.) Year-round events like Taste of the Quad Cities and the Quad Cities Marathon attract a diverse crowd from across the country.

The largest non-gaming riverboat on the upper Mississippi - Celebration Belle - lets you tour the water while enjoying lunch or dinner. Or take a Channel Cat Water Taxi back and forth to enjoy both sides of the river. Don't forget your bike to ride the trails!

The 12,000-seat iWireless Center brings conventions, concerts and sporting teams like the Quad City Mallards to our doorstep.

When you want to get out of town, the Quad Cities International Airport provides nonstop flights to eight cities. Served by four interstates, we're also a quick drive to Chicago or St. Louis. Soon, Moline will be home to the Quad Cities Multi-Modal Station, providing rail service to and from Chicago.

Business is booming here as well - and not just at Shive-Hattery. We're home to John Deere and Kone Elevator, and we're just a few minutes from the home base of Mike Wolfe, star of HISTORY' American Pickers.
