Thursday, February 23rd at 4:30 PM two businesses will share new plans and updates for the Iowa River Landing district.

The Watts Group, led by Gary Watts, will break ground on their new four-story mixed-use development on East 9th Street, just west of Backpocket Brewing in the Iowa River Landing. The project will feature retail, rental units, and penthouses. The team will be on hand to break ground, share project details, dates, renderings, and answer questions.

Following the Watts groundbreaking, guests are invited across the street to Fuzzy’s Taco Shop for a sneak peek. The baja-style taco shop officially opens its doors in early March, however, attendees can get a tour of this fun new dining experience while enjoying chips and salsa.
