Prairie Crossing

Tons of Mixed-Use Land & Retail Space, in a Booming Des Moines Entertainment Hot Spot

An abundance of exciting development opportunities can be found at Altoona’s Prairie Crossing area, the Des Moines metro’s newest entertainment hot spot! Here’s what’s up for grabs: 120 acres of mixed-use development space and roughly 400,000 square feet of premier retail space.  

Big entertainment and hospitality names like the Outlets of Des Moines, Burger Shed, Hyatt Place, and many others have already made Prairie Crossing their home. It’s not hard to see why, either—the Altoona area draws over 4 million visitors per year!

Prairie Crossing’s location is almost impossible to beat, too. It sits comfortably between I-80 and U.S. Route 65, and it’s less than 5 miles from I-35. Plus, other popular destinations like Bass Pro Shops, Adventureland Resort, and Prairie Meadows are just down the road.
