Rockwell Collins to Open Daycare in Vacant Building

CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa (KCRG-TV9) -- A new building that has been vacant since being built over a year ago will now have a future.

Rockwell Collins has announced they have signed a long-term lease agreement with Hunter Companies for a building that was intended to be a Gander Mountain store when it was built.

The 52,000 square foot building at 1215 Blairs Ferry Road NE will be anything but silent when it opens as the new location for Rockwell Collins' Child Development Center in the future.

Rockwell Collins currently has a Child Development Center on Northland Avenue NE in Cedar Rapids.

Pam Tvrdy-Cleary, a spokesperson for Rockwell Collins, says the company plans to make the transition to the new center at the beginning of 2019.
