Hubbell Celebrates Bridge District Progress & Verve Grand Opening

Des Moines, IA (May 31, 2018) – Hubbell Realty Company continues to make great progress at the popular Bridge District neighborhood, located in the historic East Village in downtown Des Moines. The Banks, for sale townhomes, and Verve, a modern apartment community, offer some of the best amenities in downtown, just steps away from popular downtown restaurants, Wells Fargo Arena and other entertainment venues.

“We’ve made extensive progress in this neighborhood over the last two years. Verve and soon-to-come Velocity offer the popular rental options that we are seeing across the metro while The Banks townhomes offer the ability to purchase in the heart of downtown,” said Kris Saddoris, Vice President of Multifamily Development. 

The Banks townhomes feature urban architecture to match the downtown lifestyle, including two-car attached garages. Inside there are spacious floor plans, luxurious finishes, and a private rooftop patio with unparalleled views of downtown. For those who prefer renting, Verve, a neighboring apartment community, offers studio, one-bed, two-bed, and three-bedroom apartment homes. If the Bridge District location isn’t enough, Verve offers even more amenities, including heated parking, a fifth-floor outdoor terrace with view of East Village, a game room, fitness center, and two-story community room. 

Next door – another apartment community – Velocity is currently under construction but will take apartment living to resort-style living by adding a pool and pool house, rooftop patio with fire pits and cabana, a fitness room with an outdoor yoga patio, and much more.

“The for-sale product at The Banks has been so well-received, we continue to sell homes prior to building them. It’s the great location, artwork and East Village attractions that make this neighborhood so popular, no matter your age,” said Rachel Flint, Vice President of Hubbell Homes. 

The Bridge District entrance also features artwork by local artist, Dennis Reynolds, of Reynolds Urban Design. Reynolds turned a discarded Boone County bridge into a modern piece of art, including a stained-glass ceiling and pathway leading to the Women of Achievement Bridge and bike trail to the Bridge District.
