City Administrator to Discuss Altoona’s Economic Development Outlook with ICREA

Jeff Mark, City Administrator in Altoona is slated to speak at the next Iowa Commercial Real Estate Association (ICREA) meeting on March 3. Mark will discuss current construction projects and future development plans happening in Altoona.

This includes the highly-anticipated Shoppes at Prairie Crossing, a 230-acre site adjacent to Bass Pro Shops, that will eventually house restaurants, retail, hotels, and as many as 500 homes. At the heart of this project is the Outlets of Des Moines, an expanse of major-label outlet stores and restaurants.

In addition, Altoona has several other projects underway including both commercial and residential developments. The Iowa Commercial Real Estate Association meets at 7:15 a.m. March 3 at Des Moines Golf and Country Club in West Des Moines. The meeting is open to anyone with an interest in commercial real estate.
