Iowa-based R&R Realty Group announced the development of Westfield Complex, a $27 million office campus that the firm says will meet the growing demand for West Des Moines office space while enhancing the work experience for today’s employees.
While developing Westfield Complex, the R&R Realty team quickly realized it would be the ideal location for its new corporate headquarters.
“We are so excited about the dynamic amenities that Westfield Complex will bring to West Des Moines that R&R will be the first company to call it home,” said Mark Rupprecht, president of R&R Realty Group. “This eclectic new campus will not only accommodate the growth we’ve seen as a leader in commercial real estate, but it will create a wonderful environment that our associates seek and deserve.”
Located on 12-acres in County Club Office Plaza, the 180,000 square feet Westfield Complex will transform the architectural landscape along Jordan Creek Parkway with its distinctive glass and metal panel exterior. The complex will consist of two 80,000-square-foot four-story office wings, Westfield North and Westfield South, and will be connected by Westfield Commons, a 20,000-square-foot four-story state-of-the-art collaboration center.
Westfield Complex will provide urban amenities such as a rooftop terrace, outdoor patios, a food truck court and underground parking. In addition, the contemporary collaboration center of Westfield Commons will feature meeting space for special events and conferences as well as food service – generating a workplace environment typically reserved to large corporate campuses.
Structurally, the buildings will utilize a steel frame system and composite metal deck with integral power, data and communication systems for state-of-the-art work spaces. An energy management system with direct digital controls will be integrated within the complex while energy efficient sunscreens will be implemented throughout the buildings. The glass exterior of Westfield Complex will deliver extensive natural daylight to each floor and create areas that are engaging, open and collaborative.
Development of Westfield Complex is expected to start this fall with completion and initial occupancy in early 2018. ICON Construction of West Des Moines has been selected to be the construction manager.
Westfield amenities include walking trails, ponds, a wellness center, a new training and conference center, a private fiber ring that offers an inexpensive network of internet and voice services, in-park daycare center, on-site property management and nearby restaurants, shopping centers and banks.
