Des Moines, IA – Hubbell Realty Company has opened Velocity, the second apartment community located in the Bridge District neighborhood, north of the East Village. This community has 115 units, bringing the total apartment units for Bridge District to just shy of 250 downtown rental units.

Velocity offers high-end amenities such as a community pool and pool house, a dog washing station, bicycle repair and storage as well as two fitness centers – one with an indoor-outdoor yoga studio. One of the best amenities is the two-story community room with a rooftop patio with a 360-degree view of downtown, including the capital. Inside, the high-level finished apartments range from a 500 square foot studio, up to a three-bedroom, three-bath apartment boasting over 1,500 square feet.

“Velocity is truly a unique downtown community which has multiple views of downtown Des Moines.
