The Dubuque Millwork District (DMD) is saturated with history. It imbues the area with authenticity and character while offering valuable lessons about the importance of sustainable urban design strategies. This District resurrects the forgotten strategy that connects people, planet, and profit in a mixed-use neighborhood. It offers a vision for a community with surrounding neighborhoods reenergized with housing, retail, offices, galleries, and entertainment. It’s re-imagined as a living laboratory, if you will, for sustainable practices and technologies.
