Property Description

SOLD – Five (5) Full Mississippi River Frontage lots located between 9th Street and 2nd Avenue North, in Cordova, Illinois.

Incredibly rare Mississippi River Frontage.
Nearly 400’ of direct access river frontage, located in beautiful Cordova, Illinois. These scenic bluffs overlook national wildlife preserves on the Iowa side of the River, open themselves to picturesque Mississippi River islands, and offer lengthy views both up and down the Mississippi River. Offered together, these lots total 1.5 acres of building site(s) zoned for multiple uses.

Riverside lots are the perfect place for the home of a lifetime and great locations to build investment homes to market. Visionary developers may purchase all the available lots, build on and sell one, pocketing the profit as capital enough to build their own retreat property along this gorgeous stretch of the Mississippi River.

Situated on high bluffs, these three (3) lots total 380’ of accessible Mississippi River, host hardwood trees, and are one of the few perfect places remaining to build an investment or dream home(s). Of the three (3) large lots, the two (2) southern lots measure 100’ each lateral river access. The northern lot, provides an even greater share of 180’ river frontage. Lengths vary, ranging back to the municipal-maintained 2nd Avenue and 9th Street, in Cordova, Illinois. Water and sanitary is established and an easy connection to the municipality. The lots are “high and dry” above flood plain, yet have easy access to potential beaching areas or future dock areas. All property is near a local marina, granting ease of access to boat owners and recreational users.

Additional two (2) lots available directly southeast, both offering 100’ of frontage facing the Mississippi River and 150’ lateral depth. These lots also excellent for commercial development, residential construction, or investment for the future.

Cordova, one of the most quaint and beautiful little towns on the Mississippi River, has approximately 650 residents, making it the perfectly sized town. Blackhawk Indians used the mounds of Cordova for sentry posts, taking advantage of the extra long views up and down the river. The first settlers arrived in Cordova in the 1830’s, bringing the population to nearly 2,000 in the 1870’s. Industry along the river boomed. Cordova was a cultural center in Rock Island County. Companies from across the nation used clams found by dragging the Mississippi River for button materials. residents of the entire region benefitted from a large grist mill operation, and a lime kiln assured construction materials were available, and the idyllic location brought shipping business to Cordova for decades.

Cordova is located short minutes from the Quad Cities Area (with an international airport available) and is an equally convenient drive from Clinton, Iowa. Recreational opportunities are everywhere. Fishing, boating, hunting, golf, motorsports (including the famous Cordova Dragway), biking, running, and hiking are all activities available literally “out your backdoor” in Cordova. Life along the river is a special way of living. Cordova is one of the few places you can enjoy clean beaches and water-loving sports in the Midwest.

All lots listed for sale are available in a variety of purchasing formats: single lot or multiple lots. Additional adjacent property may be available. Take this opportunity to stop by the stunning bluffs of Cordova and call LT Taylor for more information.
