Gronen Properties


With the help of many local companies, Gronen Properties was able to preserve a portion of history with the former CARADCO Building and bring it back to life in the form of the Schmid Innovation Center.


Gronen Restoration specializes in historic rehabilitation projects seldom approached by other developers, focusing on the adaptive re-use of classic buildings with an emphasis on sustainability.


Since 1989, Gronen Restoration has collaborated with individuals and organizations dedicated to restoring and renewing Dubuque’s past into viable and sustainable structures for Dubuque’s future. Close attention is always given to the design and quality of construction, balancing inspiring design and historic rehabilitation with energy-efficient systems. The goal with all projects is to restore each property’s true character and spirit. This proven formula leads to economic viability and community vitality.
