In reaction to the need in West Des Moines for sophisticated, luxury apartments, R&R Realty Group (R&R) recently announced the development of the new Sierra Pointe Apartments.
The Sierra Pointe Apartments homes will offer 127 units across two 3-story buildings located at 7200 Woodland Avenue in West Des Moines, Iowa with a long list of upscale amenities. “We aim to fit the lifestyle and convenience that citizens of West Des Moines, commuters to the area, and Snow Birds are searching for,” says Jenny Livingston, Vice President of Management Professionals, an R&R Realty Group subsidiary. “At Sierra Pointe, we wanted to offer something truly different in the luxury home arena. After working with multi-family strategic consultants, we compiled unique amenities and designs that are different from what you find in the West Des Moines market today.”
The list of amenities allows residents to have close access to hospitals, churches, doctor offices, and shopping without the traffic and congestion of the mall while being surrounded by green areas, a pond, and walking trail. These amenities include:
· Open, contemporary design concepts with 9’ vaulted ceilings
· Granite countertops
· Underground parking
· Shopping carts in the parking area to easily transport groceries home
· A car wash bay in the underground parking area
· Controlled Access for security
· Cyber Café offering WiFi
· 24-hour fitness center
· Elevators and trash chutes
· Select concierge services
· Privately enclosed swimming pool and hot tub
· Club House for social events
· Recycle friendly
· Bicycle friendly
“R&R is proud to be leading the trend to bring West Des Moines such a sophisticated, luxury apartment that is in demand amongst professionals and active adults,” says Mark Rupprecht, President of R&R Realty Group. “In developing Sierra Pointe Apartments, we will implement our learning points and experience from our other apartment properties including Winwood Apartments in Johnston and Country Club Village in West Des Moines. What makes R&R different from other multi-family developers is that we make decisions knowing we will own the complex for the long term. We will develop, construct, and manage Sierra Pointe Apartments and work to satisfy the residents for years to come rather than selling to local or out-of-state investors.”
