Developing Downtown Waterloo
Downtown Waterloo is Reinventing Itself
The Nelsons have a lead role in that reinvention. They are helping to drive Waterloo's latest movement of development, restoration and revitalization. Visitors and citizens from within Waterloo and surrounding areas are pleasantly surprised with the ongoing reinvention of many buildings and the visual beauty of the downtown.
An Investment of Downtown
The investment of the City in downtown is a wise investment protecting the millions of dollars in infrastructure that would otherwise go to waste. This infrastructure was abandoned when the retail sector fled to the malls. It only makes sense to take advantage of this valuable asset instead of building on farmlands that will need additional infrastructure, which in turn adds dollars to everyone's tax bills.
Downtown is the Government Center
The County Court House, City Hall, Post Office, Library, Police Department and Sheriff's Office are all located in downtown Waterloo. It is important to the health and vitality of downtown that we maintain this Government Center.
Varying Businesses Accommodating all Your Needs
Downtown Waterloo includes many multi-storied buildings, some of which are mixed use such as the Waterloo Building, National Building, Marsh Place Building, Russell Lamson Building and Park Towers. These buildings house hundreds of professionals including accountants, attorneys and architects. Convenient banking is available with multiple major banks in the downtown area.
