Plymouth place is a 12-story structure that is on the National Registry of Historic Places. The building has been classified as exceptionally significant by the National Park Service. The project is a quiet renovation, respecting the existing historic fabric, while updating systems, finishes and windows. The project reestablishes the building as an icon on the Des Moines skyline and makes the project a highly sought after address once again.
The existing 175 units were combined into 135 larger units. The public areas were refitted with new finishes, additional amenities and furnishings. Also included is an exercise area, library and lounge areas. The final interiors were designed to complement the original 1960’s lines of the architecture, as well as provide a comfortable and colorful living space suitable for the anticipated demographic.
