Is Downtown Living Right for You?

If you've been considering making a move to downtown Des Moines, but you're not sure if the lifestyle is right for you, we're here to help! Below are some of the benefits of living in this vibrant, eclectic, and thoroughly convenient neighborhood. If this sounds like you, connect with us to learn more!

Modern Aesthetic

If you love the angular lines and industrial materials of a modern design aesthetic, then downtown living might be for you! The townhomes of Gray's Station and The Banks in downtown Des Moines are sleek and stunning, while the interiors feature smart layouts and make the most of every square inch.  

Skyline Views

Something about gazing at a downtown skyline is so energizing and inspiring — especially at night. There was once a time when the best views of the skyline were reserved for luxurious penthouse suites — but no longer! The Banks is perfectly positioned in East Village to take advantage of sweeping downtown views, all from your private rooftop patio. So go ahead, grab your favorite drink and toast to the good life... every day.

Low-Maintenance Living

With so much to do in downtown Des Moines, we doubt you have time to cut the grass or rake the leaves every weekend. When you live in a low-maintenance townhome, you don't have to!  At Gray's Station and The Banks, lawns and flower beds are manicured, trees are trimmed, and snow is plowed by the HOA for you. All you have to do — any day of the week — is get up and go!

Walkability Without Crowds

Downtown Des Moines is a walkable neighborhood, but never too busy that you have to fight crowds (à la New York City). You can stroll at any pace you like to restaurants, parks, entertainment venues, events, and more. Walking daily also has so many benefits, like helping the environment, improving your health, boosting the economy, and building community. Here, walking is a way of life

Close to Green Space

Many suburban neighborhoods enjoy proximity to parks and trails, but in downtown Des Moines, you can WALK to them. Gray's Station is close to Gray's Lake Park and Water Works Park, while The Banks is situated along the peaceful Des Moines River and recreational trails. It's never been so easy to stay active and enjoy great weather!

East Village Destinations

Historic East Village is one of the most vibrant neighborhoods in the state of Iowa, and it's located right here in downtown Des Moines! If you enjoy access to fine dining, shopping, nightlife, and businesses, The Banks puts you right there in the mix.
