Prairie Pointe will begin construction in the Fall of 2012 on the north side of the DMACC campus in Ankeny. This will be the first major multi-family development in Prairie Trail, a New Urbanist designed community in the heart of Ankeny. The location along SW Prairie Trail Parkway places the project directly across from the District, the future commercial core of Prairie Trail. Due to these unique factors the project required strong collaboration between JCorp, Insite, and Prairie Trail’s Architectural Review Board. JCorp had to balance the sensitivity of student housing costs while considering the complexity of established design patterns of Prairie Trail and the future District. Prairie Pointe will be built in two phases with a total of 160 4-bedroom units within 10 buildings.
