The Location

The Quad Cities is a busy commercial hub located where Interstate 80 and the Mississippi River intersect along the borders of Illinois and Iowa. With over 37 million people living within a 300-mile radius of the Quad Cities, businesses in the QCs have easy and efficient access to a strong network of suppliers and customers.



In recent years, significant redevelopment has been transforming Moline, just to the west of The Bend, creating a sense of excitement throughout the region. A major impetus to the area’s rejuvenation has been the growth of a second campus of Western Illinois University, expected to serve 3,000 students.

With breathtaking views of the majestic Mississippi River and acres available for green open spaces and parks, The Bend will blend the best in architecture and the beauty of the environment into a vibrant livable community.

Area residents are also quickly becoming more affluent with average and media household income, as well as per capita income, expected to rise nearly 15% over the next five years. The population and number of households within ten miles of The Bend is expected to grow as well during this five-year period. These demographic shifts and regional growth provide a larger, more affluent customer base for The Bend, helping to transform it into one of the area’s most desirable addresses for living and working, as well as a shopping, dining, entertainment and recreation destination.
