Midtown Heights is located off MLK Jr. Parkway, north of Ingersoll Avenue. The site’s close proximity to the Ingersoll and Sherman Hill neighborhoods and downtown Des Moines amenities made this an ideal location for development of a brownstone community. However, existing soil at this location provided the team with a challenge as it did not have the bearing capacity for the foundation of the homes and required an installation of 189 geopiers. Midtown Heights offers homeowners a suburban townhome in an urban setting. Each of the 17 three-story homes features two spacious bedrooms, two-and-a-half bathrooms, a tuck-under two-car garage and private deck. The eat-in kitchen includes all stainless steel appliances and granite countertops. Different exterior colors give each home a distinctive look.
