Newbury Housing Developments

Des Moines, Pella, Hiawatha, Bettendorf, Carroll, Mason City, and Clear Lake

frk has worked with Newbury Development to design affordable housing complexes for working families in a variety of communities across Iowa. While the facilities have been built in close to a dozen locations, they are often similar in concept, offering a series of two and three bedroom units. One example of a Newbury project is Bloomsbury Apartments in Des Moines. The facility was built on the site of an old medical clinic, incorporating the existing building but completely renovating the interior and exterior to create room for 16 units. With the addition of a new 12-unit building, a family community was created. Another model project is Meadow Wood Apartments in Carroll which was designed with many amenities in the one, two, and three bedroom family units. Each unit includes 1.5 baths and a patio or deck. Some include walk-in closets and locations for a private washer and dryer within the apartment.
