Hubbell opens Station 121 apartment community in downtown Des Moines

Des Moines, IA (May 22, 2018) – Hubbell Realty Company is proud to announce the official opening of Station 121, a $6.5 million historic rehabilitation apartment community in downtown Des Moines. Located along 12th and Mulberry, Station 121 offers 26 apartment units each with a unique floor plan.

“This is one of our most unique historic rehabs to date,” said Kris Saddoris, Vice President of Commercial Development for Hubbell. “We’ve kept the historical elements like the original brick, showroom windows, hardwood floors and exposed bridge trusses which makes this 100-year-old building beautiful.”

Built in 1924, the building was home to Mack Truck International Corporation along Des Moines historic Auto Row. After Mack, the building, commonly referred to as the Lovejoy Building, was home to multiple businesses including the Walsmith Printing Company until being renovated by Hubbell Realty Company.

"I am so excited to see what Hubbell has done with the old Lovejoy Building, by restoring it and creating the lofts of Station 121. While so much of Des Moines downtown's architectural heritage and history has been knocked down and erased, Hubbell has gone to great lengths to preserve a little piece of character in the western gateway neighborhood,” said Jason Walsmith, whose family owned the printing company.

Station 121 has studio, one- and two-bedroom spaces, as well as two-story units featuring built-in bridge trusses. Station is joining a handful of other up-and-coming restaurants in the Western Gateway Neighborhood such as Exile, Horizon Line Coffee, Found Things, Grumpy Goat and The Walnut.
