R&R Realty Group has bought 81.5 acres of land in Urbandale in preparation for the new Center Pointe Business Park. The property is north of Interstate 35/80, south of Northwest 54th Avenue, and east of 100th Street. The Iowa Department of Transportation has announced plans to rebuild the 100th Street Bridge over the intersection and add on-ramps and off-ramps. The Highway 141 interchange is the next exit to the west, and IDOT plans to improve that intersection as well. All of the bridge work enhances the property’s appeal for development. The area is part of a planned unit development that calls for a mix of office and industrial uses.
R&R President Mark Rupprecht said the company will begin working on a master plan for the property this winter. Until development is underway, the land will be farmed. R&R is known for its campus-like developments and its patience in moving forward with projects.
