The area of East Moline that will be developed into the Fountainhead is a part of the Quad Cities, a former manufacturing hub that serves approximately 400,000 people with a workforce of nearly 200,000. As the area transforms, Fountainhead will become part of the rejuvenation, transforming the industry and direction of the various cities' developments. Fountainhead will serve an area that is steadily becoming more affluent and is fruitful for this kind of development.
