BRIDGE DISTRICT NEIGHBORHOOD ANNOUNCED BY HUBBELL
West Des Moines, IA (July 31, 2015) – A special kick-off celebration was held Thursday evening for Hubbell Realty’s newest development, Bridge District. Nestled on the east bank of the Des Moines River, south of the Greater Des Moines Botanical Garden and west of the East Village, Bridge District is a new urban neighborhood in the core of downtown Des Moines. Construction on Phase I begins in August and is scheduled to open in Summer of 2016.
“It is rare to have an opportunity to transform such a large piece of property in the heart of a Capitol city,” explained Rick Tollakson, President and CEO of Hubbell Realty Company. “The park-like corridors will offer a strong sense of community and serve as a connector between the already popular destinations in this area.”
Verve @ Bridge District includes two buildings with 128 apartment homes and a community room with a fantastic view of the Des Moines River. The $19.9 million project offers one-, two-, and three –bedroom apartments with contemporary interiors.
The Banks @ Bridge District will be upscale, urban townhomes with rooftop patios offering one-of-kind views of downtown Des Moines. Phase I of construction will include 43 for sale homes, starting at $400,000. Estimated project cost is $15.8 million.
Included in Phase I, is a pocket park designed to extend the riverfront into the neighborhood and connect it with a series of park-like green corridors and streetscapes.
“The Bridge District park will encourage people to interact with their surroundings and creates an iconic destination for residents and those passing by,” said Mayor Frank Cownie, City of Des Moines.
