WEST DES MOINES, IOWA (November 9, 2016) – After breaking ground last year, the exciting 5Fifty5 townhome development located along the beautiful Raccoon River just west of Principal Park has begun welcoming its first residents.

This one-of-a-kind townhome community will bring energy to an already booming downtown core, offering extraordinary views of downtown Des Moines and the state capital with access to recreation trails, downtown entertainment, and popular eateries.

Darcy Valline, vice president of Hubbell Apartment Living, states, “5Fifty5 begins by creating a sense of community while engaging both the vibrancy of downtown and the natural elements of the Raccoon River. The community utilizes edgy and unique architecture matched with narrower streets to create a modern urban housing option for downtown residents.”

The two-story, two-bedroom units, consisting of 1,590 square feet, feature a one car garage and second floor patio.

Three story unit consisting of three bedrooms, two-and-a-half bathrooms, a two care garage, and a large patio.

5Fifty5 features direct connections to local and regional trails like the Meredith Trail via the soon-to-be-reopened Jackson Street Bridge which feeds directly to Gray’s Lake Park.

The $13 million project touts a streetscape design that encourages walking and connects people to their surroundings, creating an authentic urban experience not currently available in this area of downtown.

One of the calling cards of 5Fifty5 is private rooftop patios overlooking both the river and Friday night Iowa Cubs’ fireworks, not to mention the rapidly changing Des Moines skyline. Additionally, 5Fifty5 introduces new layouts to the downtown area, including the introduction of an elevated three-story unit with two balconies off each side of the unit and a top floor master bedroom suite. Unit sizes include two- and three-bedroom layouts with up to three bathrooms.

5Fifty5 will host a virtual tour of the community tomorrow on Facebook at 1:30 p.m. Central Standard Time on their Facebook Page at: Anyone interested in touring or inquiring about leasing options at 5Fifty5 may visit or call 515-221-6628.
