Quad Cities My RealTeam (Mel Foster Co.)'s Blog Posts
Mel Foster Co. was founded in 1921 when at the age of 21, Mel Foster Sr. opened a one-man one-room real estate operation. The company built its first house on Telegraph Road in 1927, the beginning of thousands to be built in the area. By 1936, there were offices in Moline, Rock Island and Davenport, plus a full service insurance division.
Mel Foster, Sr. believed that it was important to provide affordable housing and he believed that industry would locate where housing was readily available. To that end the company successfully negotiated major industrial site purchases in the Quad Cities, including International Harvester, Caterpillar, 3-M, Cordova Nuclear Power Plant and ALCOA. At the same time, the company developed subdivisions, built houses and advocated for annexation, becoming a key contributor to the physical and economic development of the Quad Cities and surrounding areas.
Under the direction of Mel Foster, Jr., the company continued its tradition of leadership, including negotiations for major industrial sites such as John Deere Davenport Works, the development of prime office space, as well as major downtown and suburban developments.
A pioneer in regional residential developments, the company has continued innovations with numerous large scale subdivisions. Mel Foster Co. is committed to quality in construction and development.
