What's happening: Sherman Associates is developing a five-story, 174-unit complex called "The Meridian" at Gray's Landing, just south of its other apartments at The Nexus.

  • It’s a part of Sherman Associates' multiphase plan of building a blend of residential and commercial properties in an area once blighted by a nearby industrial site.

Details: The Meridian's market-price apartments range between studio to two-bedroom units and they're targeted at renters who are looking for "finer finishes," said Jackie Nickolaus, senior developer for Sherman Associates.

  • The amenities will include a makerspace, game room, sports simulation room, and a rooftop kitchen and deck overlooking downtown Des Moines.
  • Communal spaces are there for people who work from home and want a break from their apartments, Nickolaus said.

What's next: Construction is expected to start this spring and finish by 2024.
