Project
Description
This 5-story building is situated in the evolving downtown Des Moines area, just east of the river.  A true mixed-use building with first floor retail, second floor office, and third through fifth floor condominiums and apartments. The bulk of the structure is constructed of prestressed concrete to leave the inside space as open as possible.

The west facade is steel framed with metal stud infill.  Auger cast in place piles transmit required forces from the building into the solid bearing below the poor soil conditions just below the slab surfaces of the building.
