Fountainhead is located along the Mississippi River in East Moline, Illinois, part of the bi-state region in Iowa/Illinois known as the Quad Cities. The sprawling 132 acres of prime riverfront real estate is the Quad Cities’ largest flood protected space on the river.


    This former industrial site is being transformed into a vibrant livable community. Open spaces, public parks and the river will surround beautiful hotels, apartment complexes, shops, offices, restaurants, and other amenities. Creating an inspiring place to live, work, shop, visit and enjoy.

    One-of-a-kind Place

    Fountainhead will showcase the talents of world-renown architects James DeStefano, Helmut Jahn, Margaret McCurry, Stanley Tigerman and Tom Oslund. This master-planned mixed-use development will be a fresh palette for their work in an inspiring space on the Mississippi River.


“Fountainhead is an initiative to inspire. The creation of a unique sense of place affords that opportunity and is a compelling factor that guides us in shaping the physical and conceptual character of the environment.”
