500 on 1st

Located along the Cedar River, 500 on 1st is designed to flow into the riverfront’s expanding pedestrian network. The site is adjacent to the McGrath Amphitheatre, a popular outdoor concert venue, and its adjacency to downtown offers residents a direct connection to the sights and sounds of downtown events. The design fits the scale of the developing neighborhood while referencing the architecture of downtown.
