Construction crews broke ground last week at the site of Sammons Fnancial Group’s new corporate headquarters in West Des Moines, Iowa. The Weitz Company is the general contractor of this project.
Employees from both Sammons and Weitz, city and state officials, project developer KDC and project architects SVPAA Architects and HKS all attened the ground-breaking ceremony.
The six-story, 230,000-square-foot building will bring together Sammons’ local employees who are now spread across three leased facilities. The project will feature a two-story amenity area for employees and visitors that will provide access to outdoor walking trails. Surface parking and a below-grade parking garage are also included.
Scheduled for completion in the fall of 2020, this will be the fourth major office building the Weitz Company will have built near the West Des Moines intersection of Mills Civic Parkway and Jordan Creek Parkway.
