TWG Expands Affordable Housing Options with Construction of Des Moines Project

The Pointe on 88th marks TWG’s 12th project in Iowa, supporting ongoing affordable housing needs

Des Moines, IA —TWG (www.twgdev.com), a national real estate development company specializing in commercial, market rate, affordable and senior housing developments, today announces the construction of the Pointe on 88th, an $11 million affordable, multifamily project serving the West Des Moines, Iowa community.

Located at 520 88th Street, the Pointe on 88th is a three-story, 49-unit development, located just south of U.S. 80 and situated across Whisper Point Park, a five minute-drive away from Valley View Aquatic Center. The mixed-income development offers one-bedroom, two-bedroom, and three-bedroom apartments, with 44 units reserved for residents earning 30%-60% of the area median income (AMI) and 5 units available at market-rate.

The project marks continued strides by TWG to bring affordable housing to a community that historically lacks a diversity of incomes. TWG recently completed construction on Lillis Lofts, a $10 million affordable housing development in Urbandale last month.

“This project contributes to addressing the affordable housing needs in the West Des Moines area by providing options for all types of renter demographics,” said Graham Parr, Development Analyst at TWG. “The Pointe on 88th marks our 12th project in Iowa, and we are grateful to continue to have an impact on the local community and strengthen our presence in the state of Iowa.”

Amenities of the new property include a community room, on-site leasing office, and fitness room. Construction of the project is already underway, and the development is expected to be completed by Fall 2022.
