Ders Group Underway on $275M Mixed-Use Development in Tiffin, Iowa
TIFFIN, IOWA — The Ders Group is underway on the development of Park Place in Tiffin, about 10 miles west of Iowa City. The $275 million mixed-use development will be situated on 400 acres. In addition to retail and office space, plans call for approximately 2,000 apartment units and 200 single-family lots. The Ders Group, headquartered in Coralville, Iowa, acquired all of the land in 2016. The developer completed infrastructure construction last fall.
Andersen Square, a city center, is the main attraction of Park Place. Phase I includes five buildings with first-floor commercial space and five floors of apartment units above. Completion is slated for summer 2020. Phase II includes six more buildings. The initial phase of commercial space is 75 percent pre-leased. Tenants include fast food retailers, local restaurants, a regional gas station, bank, health club and live entertainment restaurant.
