New places to live, shop and eat are moving into Davenport, but one new store moving in, is selling some pretty old stuff.
It's an antique store, and it's one of the first storefronts to stir up the Western end of Second Street just a few blocks away from the Centennial bridge.
"Hopefully at least in this area it brings some retail, it brings some traffic to the area and cleans it up a little bit."
Joe Wonio is only 26 and is revamping the building. The bottom will hold an antique shop and an antique mall, which will have space for numerous antique vendors to show their stuff.
"She's going to be occupying this spot at 520 and she will have this property too but will lease it out to other vendors."
Company 38 Antiques is set to open by the end of the month, but Joe has some work to do on the other building.
"I'm going to need to reface that Eastern exterior wall, I'm going to need to do some tuck pointing around the building and make the necessary roof improvements."
But a few antique shops is far from where the development ends.
"Chocolate manor, dress for success just moved into new locations downtown."
And on top of that, Kyle Carter with the Downtown Davenport Partnership says at least three buildings are already being renovated for new downtown living.
"Just getting started we have a lot more to do."
And residents like, Austin Plagge, think the new things popping up are great for the city.
"I think it is pretty cool and it will bring a lot more people here and give a lot more opportunities for people to live downtown."
If you want to know what to expect in the antique mall, the same woman already owns the Junk Asylum in Eldridge.
There are more developments outside the downtown area. Elmore Marketplace is scheduled to open its doors in February.
The new strip mall will feature stores like Charming Charlie, Banana Republic and DSW.
Project developer, Mike Whalen says he's already getting thanked by women in the community.
"Over a hundred million dollars leaves or leaks out of this market and we're trying to get retailers that will make sure millions of dollars will stay in this community and not go to Chicago, Des Moines or Iowa City."
The 35 million dollar project will also bring a Holiday Inn to the development site.
