Broad & Main in Uptown Marion

Located in Marion, IA

Back to projects

The City of Marion Iowa was looking for a development team to replace an aging strip retail center that did not add to the local character of Uptown Marion. Eagle View Partners out of Cedar Falls, Iowa with DCI Group Inc. was selected to redevelop the site based on their successful projects transforming and restoring the downtown Cedar Falls area with many residential and mixed-use projects.

Broad and Main on 7th is the first phase of a two phase mixed-use project that will add to Uptown Marion by creating pedestrian focused retail and restaurant space on the ground floor with connectivity to the adjacent historic district and City Square Park. The 42 residential units above feature studio, one bedroom and two bedroom units designed around large windows to capture natural light and offer views to the park and uptown area.

Broad and Main on 6th is the second phase which will add 42 apartments as well as amenity space and underbuilding parking for the residents.

Both projects are working closely with the City of Marion as they implement many other improvement projects including revised streetscaping and a new pedestrian plaza that extends City Square Park to the site. The Broad and Main development projects blur the line between public and private space providing a project that ties seamlessly into the uptown context and offers new opportunities for retail, restaurants and residential living options.
