This is the fourth and final in a series profiling development on SE Ankeny St. This street is currently in the midst of massive redevelopment. Read part onepart two, and part three.

Several additional duplexes are wrapping up construction as part of the Ankeny Lofts project.

The property was previously home to an auto garage and yard.


The easternmost of the three lots saw the completion of two duplexes on the property in 2011. In 2013, the developer applied for construction on two additional lots to the west. The initial lot is 2,400 square feet. The two additional lots are each 2,500 square feet.

Construction began in 2014.
