An established shopping destination located just six miles from Des Moines, Altoona welcomed the opening of the Outlets of Des Moines in Fall 2017. This super-regional open-air power center is home to the nation’s finest retailers who call the 300,000 SF Outlet Center home, including Nike Factory Store, Loft Outlet, Under Armour, and Michael Kors.
An opportunity for over 500,000 SF of additional big box, junior tenants, restaurants and smaller retailers lies in the 148 acre Prairie Crossing development surrounding the Outlets. This development also features Bass Pro Shops, Johnny’s Italian Steakhouse, Fairfield Inn & Suites, HyVee Fast & Fresh and Burger Shed. Hyatt Place has begun construction. Large pedestrian walkways, calm water features and unique storefronts are hallmarks of this Craftsman-influenced development, the only large scale retail shopping center in Eastern Polk County.
