A destination for retail, dining, entertainment and professional services.

Strategically positioned on the eastern corridor of the booming Des Moines metro, Prairie Crossing is a premier super-regional mixed-use development. Now, major developers, businesses and brands are joining the movement.


Positioned at the Crossroads of America.

Prairie Crossing draws on an expansive trade area that serves all of Des Moines, as well as communities east of the metro area (up to 60 miles from the site).

The development is situated at the crossroads of Interstate 80 and Highway 65, where traffic generators – like Bass Pro Shops, Outlets of Des Moines, Adventureland, and Prairie Meadows Hotel, Racetrack and Casino – bring more than 4 million visitors to Altoona annually.
