Directly adjacent to Colorado State University’s campus, the existing St. John XXIII site will be redeveloped to provide a new sanctuary, Newman Center, and student housing. These three distinct features will allow St. John XXIII to continue its ministry to more than 33,000 students and parish community. Engaging students through quality housing, worship, and dedicated programming space provides a unique opportunity to integrate the Catholic faith into the college experience.
Located in the North Capital Hill neighborhood, the project sits on a half-city block and features a blend of upper-story housing with street-level retail. A new parish hall, administrative space, and parking will be provided in support of the Cathedral Basilica of the Immaculate Conception. Given its proximity to the State Capital and financial district, as well as significant public and private investment in the neighborhood, the project is distinctly positioned for success.
Situated in the heart of downtown Des Moines, this 33-story residential tower offers a blend of market-rate and attainable across 336 rental units. Few affordable housing options exist in the downtown core, and market studies point to a significant demand for housing at reduced price points. Tenants will enjoy the convenience of living downtown, while enjoying amenities such as a cantilevered pool on the top floor and unobstructed views of the State Capital. This project continues to push the narrative of what attainable housing looks like and how it should be integrated into the standard development process.
This service campus on Des Moines’ south side focuses on providing supportive programming through a job training center, food pantry, thrift store, crisis pregnancy medical clinic, and criminal justice rehabilitation program. The multi-site cluster will enable established organizations such as Bridges of Iowa, InnerVisions HealthCare, and St. Vincent De Paul to expand their outreach, permanently improving people’s lives.
