Hubbell opens Carbon 550 in downtown Des Moines, near YMCA

Des Moines, IA (March 25, 2019) – Hubbell Realty Company has opened Carbon 550, an apartment community in the heart of downtown Des Moines next to the Downtown Wellmark YMCA. The 50-unit community sits along 6th Avenue neighboring businesses like Principal Financial Group, American Enterprise Group, Iowa Events Center and many of downtown’s boutique hotels and favorite restaurants.

Inside Carbon, residents will find bright pops of color, bold accents and very modern kitchens with open-concept layouts and high ceilings. The community has one- and two-bedroom floorplans ranging from 550 to 1,100 square feet in a variety of finishes. The community spaces feature a funky arcade-inspired room with classic games like air hockey, Skee-Ball and plenty of space to host game nights and gatherings.

“Carbon is a funky, perfect fit for those work and live in downtown Des Moines. The beauty of this building is its size, high-end finishes and great access to literally everything in downtown – businesses, art, YMCA, music, food and more. This community has truly been a fun experience and will continue to be for future residents,” said Kris Saddoris, Vice President of Multi-family Development for Hubbell.

Carbon 550 also has indoor heated parking spaces for residents as well as membership opportunities to the next-door YMCA. To schedule a tour or for more information on Carbon 550, visit
