AC Hotel | Des Moines, IA | NOW OPEN
The project involved the infill of an existing city owned parking lot at the southeast corner of East Grand Avenue and Fourth Street with a six story, 75,000 square foot, 109 room AC Hotel by Marriott. The location sits in the heart of the East Village, surrounded by retail, restaurants and night life.
The hotel architectural style could be referred to as Neo-Modernism. Using a mix of complimentary materials including brick, limestone, aluminum, and fiber cement, the architecture uses a series of monolithic shapes, optimized for functionality. The contemporary structure will embrace a sustainable green initiative. The project fits contextually with the surrounding neighborhood, adding to the walkable landscape. The pedestrian experience is enhanced with sidewalk streetscape improvements including constructing a corner pedestrian bulb-out and incorporation of a ‘pocket park’ to the east. The sidewalks and property surrounding the building would be built to provide for street trees and furniture, such as decorative lighting, benches, trash receptacles, bicycle racks, implementing accessibility and safety features.
Location: SE Corner of East Grand Avenue and Fourth Street, Des Moines, Iowa
