Coralville has invested in revamping its 5th Street (its original “main street”) with shops, offices, and municipal services in well-planned brick buildings, from the new library near an updated city park to New Pioneer Coop grocery store and upscale furniture stores. A new luxury residential and commercial condominium building, Plaza on Fifth, also houses Coralville’s well-equipped Center for the Performing Arts. Near the interstate, Coralville has added a second recent major development called Iowa River Landing. Anchored by the Marriott Hotel and Convention Center, neighboring condominiums are near a major new department store, restaurants, a brewery, and the University of Iowa’s large outpatient clinic (with plans for a second building) near the entrance to the development.
Location: Neighborhoods are located north of the Coralville strip (Hwy 6) and along 1st Avenue/ Hayden Fry Speedway in Coralville including "original" main street, 5th Avenue and latest attraction, River Landing
Origin: Once the location of a number of mills that were powered by the Coralville mill dam along the Iowa River, Coralville was incorporated as a city in 1873. Coralville saw growth following World War II and the construction of Interstate 80 in the 1960s that brought several motels and restaurants. In 1998 a major regional shopping center, Coral Ridge Mall, opened followed by ongoing new developments and City improvement projects. As of 2010, Coralville is one of the top 50 fastest growing cities in Iowa.
