The space
Hello Neighbor! This apartment will be your home in Des Moines. You are given an access code to enter the building. Arriving at your unit, there is a lockbox with a key to get inside. The code is sent on the day of your arrival. Noise between other units/floors is minimal as there are concrete floors and walls.

Just inside the front door, there is an area for your coat, bag, keys, etc. The kitchen has a Keurig, K-pods, Brita water pitcher, toaster, plates, bowls, silverware, drinking glasses, wine glasses, kitchen utensils, pots & pans, bakeware and more. There is also a dining table with seating.

The living room has a sofa, chair and smart TV where you can use your existing account for Netflix, Hulu, Amazon, etc. There is also cable and wireless internet provided throughout.

The bedroom has a queen-size bed with a dresser and a separate closet with hangers. There is also a full-size washer & dryer, drying rack, iron, ironing board, laundry supplies, etc. All of the windows in the apartment have privacy shades, but I recommend bringing a sleep mask if you need darker sleeping conditions!

The bathroom has a stand-up shower with body wash, shampoo, and conditioner. Under the bathroom sink, there are additional towels, toilet paper, and a hairdryer.

Guest access
On the lower level of the building, there is a fitness center with treadmills, ellipticals, and free weights. Across the hall is the fitness studio with mats, medicine balls and more. There is also a lounge area with seating, TV (cable), wireless internet, water and a coffee bar providing a unique, open-air experience.

On the second floor, the skyline terrace is a perfect place to watch the city unfold. Offering exceptional views of the downtown skyline, premium fireworks viewing, seating and more.

Outdoors, there is a rack if you need a place to secure your bike. Please remember to bring your own lock.

If you will be staying long term, there is dry cleaning service available for an additional fee directly with the cleaning service. It is picked up/dropped off on Mondays and Thursdays before 12PM. You can arrange this with the leasing office directly.
