Fresh Food, More Convenience Right Here in Des Moines

What’s new around Des Moines?!

Hy-Vee is anticipating the start of construction of a Fast & Fresh mini-grocery store at the corner of Hickman and Merle Hay Road. With the mini-store concept, fresh food will be conveniently located at your fingertips.

Set to break ground next summer, the mini-store concept provides locations bigger than a convenience store, but smaller than a typical Hy-Vee grocery store. The mini-market will provide fresh food, Starbucks coffee, and Market Grille entrees in a slightly smaller venue.

The smaller footprint will enable Hy-Vee to provide fresh, healthy options for many growing neighborhoods without the need for large parcels of land.

Downtown Des Moines Exciting New Developments

Fun exciting new things are in store for downtown Des Moines!

Downtown is already a thriving area with bustling businesses, trendy shops, delicious restaurants, and beautify scenery – and it is about to become even more lively. Construction on the 21C Museum Hotel is scheduled to begin this summer. This high-rise project, being developed by Mandelbaum Properties, adds a boutique hotel and apartments to downtown. Modern art will be featured in the hotel lobby, on the skyway level, and will be tucked into unexpected nooks and crannies. The project will add to the already vibrant art scene in Des Moines.

In addition, the high-rise building will be a “mixed-use” project as a movie theatre will also be a part of the development. Adding the movie theatre along with the rotating art exhibitions will entice people to visit and move into our already active downtown.

I’d love to talk more about the exciting things downtown Des Moines has to offer. Feel free to contact me about how your commercial real estate development might fit into exhilarating downtown Des Moines.
