What is being built across from Hamburg Inn No. 2 where the substation used to be? — Jackie from Iowa City, via Facebook.
The answer is the one you’d expect in Iowa City: apartments. Or to be more precise: apartments, mostly.
The former site of a MidAmerican Energy substation is now the future site of a three-story building. According to plans filed with the city, the ground level will feature retail space, and three parking spaces. The top two floors of the 3,400-square-foot building will be divided between two one-bedroom apartments and one two-bedroom apartment.
The building is a project of Allen Homes, whose offices are located next to the site.
