Construction on Carbon 550 begins in downtown Des Moines, next to Wellmark YMCA

Des Moines, IA (January 22, 2018) – Hubbell Realty Company has broken ground on the latest apartment community downtown: Carbon 550. Carbon will have 50 units, 39 heated underground parking spaces, and will feature sleek interiors, bold colors and a modernized arcade community space.

Carbon 550 is intended for those who want to live, work and play in their element. Inside, you’ll find that Hubbell is pushing the envelope with Carbon’s interior design choices - neon colors, floating cabinets and graffiti art to name a few.

While Carbon is steps away from Cowles Commons, Capital Square, Court Avenue and Market District and the Riverfront walk, one of its best features is the neighboring downtown Wellmark YMCA. The state-of-the-art equipment, brand new Olympic-sized pool and fitness classes are fantastic amenities sure to please anyone looking to call downtown home. Hubbell Realty Company is truly looking forward to giving young professionals a place to live, work and especially play in the heart of downtown Des Moines.

“We are excited to bring another unique development to the downtown neighborhood. Its core location provides exceptional connectivity and walkability to downtown employment, recreation and restaurants,” said Kris Saddoris, Vice President of Commercial Development.

Carbon 550 is expected to open in early 2019. See attached video as an ongoing series of sneak peeks into Carbon 550’s element and lifestyle.
