A new development with apartments, townhomes, and community commercial space — including a Scooter’s Coffee and a restaurant — on North Dodge Street and North Scott Boulevard will soon be constructed.

Iowa City Council approved the rezoning request Tuesday for the four-acre area at the corner of North Dodge Street and Scott Boulevard. This new development sits just off the Interstate 80 exit.
