Hello Iowa: Start Fresh with Clean Slate at Community for Active Adults

Featuring Allison Shaw, Regional Director of Operations

Sherman Associates’ Regional Director of Operations, Allison Shaw, joins Hello Iowa to introduce Slate at Gray’s Landing, Sherman’s active 55+ luxury housing development in the Gray’s Landing neighborhood of Des Moines. Hello Iowa is a premier lifestyle show, broadcast by WHO-TV Channel 13, the Des Moines NBC affiliate.

Slate is the only luxury apartment building for those 55 and older and with an active lifestyle, in the downtown Des Moines area. For many residents, this is a lifestyle change. Many are downsizing, selling homes, and discovering a new style of living that allows them to indulge more and stress less with a maintenance-free lifestyle.

The Gray’s Landing neighborhood is perfectly situated just south of the downtown Des Moines business district, and just north of Gray’s Lake, giving perfect cohesion to enjoy the downtown vibrancy and the natural reprieve to support an active lifestyle. Expansive amenities are thoughtfully designed for entertaining, interaction, and maintaining an active lifestyle. All amenities are centrally located and offer open sightlines to support social connection.

Slate is adjacent to other developments in Sherman’s portfolio and within the Gray’s Landing neighborhood. The Edge at Gray’s Landing provides 90 affordable and market-rate apartments, Holiday Inn Express & Suites Des Moines has 102 rooms, and the Gray’s Landing Office building includes Sherman’s regional office and Starbucks, providing approximately 63,000 SF of Class A office space. The Meridian at Gray’s Landing is under construction and will deliver 170 luxury homes in late 2024.

Sherman has been developing in Des Moines for nearly 20 years and has additional multifamily developments in downtown Des Moines including Metro Lofts, Vine Street Lofts, The Randolph, and Rumely Lofts, and recently acquired Fort Des Moines Living in south Des Moines.
