Uniting community resources of volunteer service, professional expertise, and financial assets to save abandoned buildings in our neighborhood.


     Gateway Redevelopment Group (GRG), a 501 (c)(3) not-for-profit organization was formed by a group of neighbors with the desire to save the abandoned historic structures in Davenport’s Hamburg Historic District. Our first challenge was the Jipp home and grocery at the corner of 8th and Gaines. The Jipp serves not only as our office, but a place to tell the story of the Jipp's place in the Hamburg Historic District, the Neighborhood Resource Center, and the home of our  Architectural Rescue Shop

The shop is used to sell, collect, preserve, restore, and display architectural items from other vintage houses being renovated or demolished in the Quad Cities.  The profits from the sale of these items are used to help in the restoration of this and other abandoned homes in our neighborhood.
