According to the Quad-City Times, the city of Moline is using federal stimulus funding to renovate this aged building and put it to use. Since 1944, Classic John Deere has moved out, and the ownership of the building has changed several times. There were several close calls, as the building was threatened by demolition on at least two separate occasions.
These new renovations will include new roofing, lead and asbestos abatement, as well as a new parking area and additional fire escapes. The new owners claim that most of the expenses are going toward more than 100 windows and 95 doors that need to be installed. The project is expected to be completed by the end of this year.
