With numerous other Jordan Creek retail developments on the horizon, The Oaks Development Company realized the timing for this project was right. They relied on frk to design an up-scale retail center to attract a variety of different businesses, shopping and restaurants. This project occupies a very visible West Des Moines corner on Bridgewood Boulevard and Jordan Creek Parkway. The property is also adjacent to housing, so it uses a mixture of brick, cultured stone, cedar siding and shingled sloping roofs to create a residential look. Special attention was given to continuing the same level of finishes around the entire building due to its visibility from neighboring communities and the new bike path. A 14’-0” height to structure allowed plenty of flexibility for various needs of the end users. Attractive red aluminum storefront framing completes the look, running floor to ceiling for maximum visibility.
