ACTIVATE AND ENGAGE
The building seeks to engage pedestrians and vehicular traffic and also provide wayfinding/building identity. Located at a heavily travelled intersection across from the Des Moines Social Club, it is imperative to activate the corner, relate to the pedestrian scale, and dialogue with an established and renowned cultural attraction.
The building strives to connect with its urban surroundings by providing strong and meaningful pedestrian connections with access to the skywalk system, the vibrant streetscape. The building also dialogues with the DMSC patio with an elevated courtyard and community room.
The building seeks to provide a unique downtown living experience, including an active outdoor entertainment area at the courtyard, private fitness and community room amenities overlooking the DMSC, and integration with the downtown skywalk system.
