The Iowa City City Council, on a 7-0 vote, approved the Riverfront Crossings development plans on Tuesday.

The development is projected to go along the Gilbert Street corridor as well as cover the area where the north waste water plant is located, which will be consolidated with the south plant.

Plans include enhancing Ralston Creek to become a community asset, establishing recreational parks, and conserving wetlands, said senior city planner Robert Miklo.

The plan proposes intense residential mixed-use development in the area to account for density, as well as other environmentally friendly strategies.

The projected construction time has not yet been addressed, but 10 to 20 years is the general estimation, Miklo said.
