West Des Moines, IA (June 4, 2013) – Hubbell Realty Company is once again expanding the housing options in downtown Des Moines through development of a new rental townhome community.  7th Street Brownstones will be the first of its kind in the downtown Des Moines market.  The $6.8 million development is currently underway on a site just south of MLK Jr. Parkway, and the first townhomes will be completed in November 2013.

The rental homes are modeled after Hubbell’s successful brownstones community located on Grand Avenue between 2nd and 3rd Streets.  This brownstone neighborhood was a for-sale product that sold out while the final phase of the community was still under construction.  Momentum for development of a similar product, but with the flexibility of renting, grew as inquiries flooded in throughout construction of the neighborhood.

7th Street Brownstones will consist of 34 two-story, three-bedroom, three-bathroom rental townhomes.  The homes feature walk-in closets, stainless steel appliances, washers/dryers, granite countertops, two-car garages and rooftop patios with pergola and wet bar.  Brownstone renters will share a community courtyard.

“7th Street Brownstones plays a key role in the resurgence of the area south of MLK Jr. Parkway.  Through adaptive reuse of historic warehouse buildings, such as Hubbell’s Rocket Transfer Lofts and Riverpoint Lofts buildings, as well as new construction like 7th Street Brownstones, this area is transforming into a unique mixed-use neighborhood,” stated Kris Saddoris, Vice President Development, Hubbell Realty Company. “With open space, proximity to Des Moines attractions and cultural events, accessibility to trails and ease of on-site parking, this neighborhood is growing exponentially, and we are excited to be a part of it.”

7th Street Brownstones is being built by Hubbell Construction Services and managed by Hubbell Apartment Living.  It is located at 320 SW 7th Street Des Moines, Iowa.  For more information, call 515-221-6626 or visit
