The Shops at Merle Hay

Des Moines, IA

The Shops at Merle Hay is a 15,000 square foot retail center located at one of the busiest intersections in Des Moines. The building has a contemporary look with an abundance of glass and masonry with EIFS and metal facades to add color, interest and visibility. The project was 80% leased prior to construction by several national retailers whose prototypical architectural themes were incorporated into the design. Plenty of parking conveniently surrounds the building and site while attractive landscaping maintains a consistent look with the neighborhood. The project is further identified by three very visible site signs that complement the building’s architecture and color.
