Giving Old News a Fresh Start

Our team is partnering with the current building owner to breathe new life into the storied former Courier Newspaper/Montgomery Wards Department Store. This ambitious venture will revamp the historic property into a lively hub for both residential and commercial activities. As part of the plan, more than 65 modern rental housing units will be introduced along with first-floor commercial spaces that will add to the location’s vibrancy. Additionally, the basement level will feature covered parking to ensure convenience for residents and visitors alike.

Located just across from the Waterloo Convention Center, this revitalization isn’t just a construction project—it’s a catalyst for community growth and urban rejuvenation. Slated to commence in 2024 upon approvals from the State Historic Preservation Office and National Park Service.
