Formerly a warehouse built in 1914, this 60,000 sq. ft. structure has been completely revamped and given new life. Balconies were added to the second and third floors and offer great views of the Mississippi River and downtown Rock Island. The condos range from 1,200 to 2,300 sq.ft. with sales prices ranging from $129,900 to $229,900. All units come with approximately 70 square feet of secured storage space on the second level. Multiple security cameras throughout the building ensure peace of mind to provide maximum comfort for the residents. Parking for residential is provided in the lower level and the city parking lot on 19th St., and parking for commercial is provided in the city lot.

McKesson Lofts is the first residential building in Rock Island with an environmentally friendly green roof. The 10,000 sq.ft. green roof is built among three skylights and includes a variety of plants including sedum, prairie coneflower, and allium, that reduces heat loss, improves cooling, and retains 4,636 gallons of rainwater from a one-inch rainfall.

When you set foot outside, you'll find yourself within the heart of downtown Rock Island, known as The Downtown Rock Island Arts & Entertainment District (The District). McKesson's back yard also boasts Schwiebert Riverfront Park, an award-winning park that is the Midwest's first digital playground. Also enjoy over 60+ miles of riverfront trails to walk, run, or bike along the Mississippi River.

$30,000 grant dollars are available for certain McKesson Loft Condominiums. Income restrictions apply, and the potential buyer must be eligible and complete a homebuyer program application.
