1920’s Davenport Grain Bin Turned Into Trendy Airbnb
A renovated grain bin tower is now a beautiful penthouse Downtown Davenport and you gotta see it.I love it when local visionaries, realtors, architects and contractors see much more than a dumpy, old, building in the Quad Cities. The history and beauty that remain in our downtown districts sets our vibe apart from run-of-the-mill, cookie-cutter, square buildings. I've purposefully stayed in Airbnb's or renovated historic buildings-turned-hotels when I travel the country. These have been experiences I've never forgotten that have added a great deal of flavor to my travels.
However, with this new discovery, I won't have to travel far to get the same experience.
I geeked out a little when I read QCTimes.com today about the nearly 100 year-old grain bin building behind The Half Nelson restaurant in Downtown Davenport being turned into an Airbnb that sleeps six, has 16 foot ceilings, tons of windows and a view of the Mississippi River that's breathtaking. There's even a private deck on the 3rd floor.
"And when Pete Stopulos bought the building for development into a restaurant, meadery and apartments, he knew the addition he calls the penthouse tower had spectacular redevelopment potential as a residence."
