Local Opportunities

The Novelty Iron Works complex is located in the heart of Dubuque’s Historic Millwork District encompassing an entire City block between 10th & 11th streets and Washington & Elm streets.

Novelty Iron is a key component of the revitalization of the Historic Millwork District which is collectively bringing to life a strategy to connect people, planet, and economic vitality in a mixed-use neighborhood.

Novelty Iron and the Millwork District Revitalization is striving to reconnect with surrounding neighborhoods, with “Complete Streets,” a new transportation center, reenergized with housing, retail, offices, galleries, entertainment, and employment.

The area is being re-imagined as a laboratory for sustainable practices and technologies.
