REPUBLIC, Mo. (KY3) – A $65 million project known as the “Iron Grain District” is the work for the Republic community, an opportunity that would include major commercial and residential development.
Mager Management, a Springfield-based company that has owned and managed nearly 200 properties over more than 40 years, is leading mixed-use real estate development. The company says the Iron Grain District will be the largest mixed-use development in the Republic.
The neighborhood will be built near the Amazon warehouse and Convoy of Hope headquarters in the James River Freeway and State Highway MM area. It will offer multi-family housing and townhouses, in addition to restaurants, shops and local entertainment.
“The proposed Iron Grain District project brings together commercial and residential development in a way that aligns with our current goal of making Republic a better place to live, work and play,” said the mayor of Republic Matthew Russell.
Magers Management Company has released the following renderings:
The first phase of development includes a 24,000 square foot shopping center and the possibility of additional space for lease. Plans also call for over 200 residential units, a swimming pool, clubhouse, dog park and walking paths. Magers Management says the district could host a variety of community-focused events.
“The Iron Grain District aims to actively and thoughtfully partner with Republic residents to put people at the heart of the entire experience,” said Shannon Handwerker, vice president of operations at Magers Management Company.
City leaders say the name “Iron Grain District” honors Republic’s historic roots as a major railroad hub in the Midwest and home to one of the largest mills in the Ozarks.
“It’s exciting to see this continued investment in our community. Iron Grain District represents the kind of intentional development that sets Republic apart,” said Republic City Administrator David Cameron.
