WEST DES MOINES, IOWA (February 23, 2017)Hubbell Realty Company celebrated the grand opening of its Cadence apartment community in Johnston on Wednesday. Cadence is the first of its kind in the city and brings the modern accommodations of urban living into a thriving suburb. Located on just over 8 acres on Merle Hay Road and 63rd Street, “Cadence is the perfect place to call home,” said Rick Tollakson, Hubbell Realty Company President and CEO, as he kicked off the ribbon cutting ceremony in the community clubhouse. 
Cadence is a first-class offering for everyone from the young working professional to the empty-nester who wants to live in a comfortable community. The luxury finishes, 24-hour fitness center, large theater room, resort-style pool, a gorgeous natural light-filled clubhouse with a fireplace that spans the room “make this a special place to live and sets Cadence on a level all of its own,” said Kris Saddoris, vice president of development for Hubbell Realty Company. 
In celebrating and welcoming the modern Cadence to the community, Johnston Mayor Paula Dierenfeld said, “We couldn’t be more pleased with what has happened along the (Merle Hay Road) corridor here. Our vision is becoming a reality and Cadence is one of the best examples of that.”
Cadence consists of 195 urban infill apartment homes located at 6300 Merle Hay Road in Johnston.  It provides a wide variety of options for prospective residents including larger master suites, taller ceilings, more open living spaces and upgraded finishes. Approximately 15 percent of the units will have executive finishes with penthouse lofts on the top floor. The spacious floor plans feature one-, two-, and three-bedroom layouts with contemporary interiors and soaring ceilings, ensuring options for a broad customer base.
