Anawim Housing approached Hubbell Construction Services about providing contracting services for a new multi-family apartment complex on Des Moines’ northeast side. Anawim and Hubbell have a strong partnership after developing several affordable-living housing projects together. The 60-unit The Crest at Baker Creek received a Low Income Housing Tax Credit award and development was required to follow Iowa Finance Authority construction guidelines. The project serves people who qualify for income-restricted housing at the 60% of the area median household income level.
The apartments at The Crest at Baker Creek are energy-efficient, featuring geothermal heating and cooling. Floor plans range in size from one-bedroom up to three-bedroom layouts, and each apartment comes complete with a full kitchen, ceiling fans, covered patio and in-unit washer/dryer. Community amenities include a fitness center, clubhouse, community garden, business center and bike racks.
