Engage with the Site
The Eagle View Lofts project gets its name from the proximity to an Eagle Nesting area on the Des Moines river and will include a overhanging sixth floor common balcony for viewing the eagles as well as toward the iCubs ballpark and city beyond. The lobby with fitness room engages the pool surrounded by natural landscape.
The building’s steel and concrete structure, fenestration and vertical cores are all expressed from the exterior. Raised on columns to offer views over the levee, the 7 story 120 unit residential tower is comprised of one bedroom 450 sq. ft. units oriented to city/neighborhood. By offsetting the corridor there is an 80/40 split accordingly.
The building envelope and systems exceed code by 20% and meet State of Iowa Green Streets program criteria. The site storm water management and landscaping provide for better water quality while also providing a natural landscape of existing mature trees, native grasses and bioswales.
