West Des Moines, IA—The Village Cooperative of West Des Moines broke ground on September 21st on a senior living complex for active seniors age 55+ to be built just south of Mills Civic Pkwy and 60th Street. The new cooperative community, which is slated for completion Fall of 2016, will offer 55 spacious and expertly designed one, two and two+ bedroom homes with private balconies and fully equipped kitchens and laundry.
Amenities will include a community room, woodworking shop, club room, guest suites, fitness room, raised garden beds, “while-you’re-away” services and heated, underground parking with a car wash bay—all wrapped up in a step-free, secure building. The homes will be well equipped with all appliances and offer in-home storage, walk-in closets and individually controlled HVAC systems.
Village Cooperative is a community of active adults who want to escape the hassles of home maintenance and upkeep but want to retain the investment and tax advantages of home ownership. “We like the easy lifestyle the Village Cooperative offers and we’re excited to see dirt move. We have built some great friendships with the co-op members and we’re looking forward to being neighbors soon.” said Larry Hassman, a current member of the Village Cooperative of West Des Moines.
