Featured Portfolio


This mixed-use, 6 story, 70,000sf flagship property sits in the heart of Iowa State University’s Campustown community providing classic loft style living options to students.  Built in 2004, residents of the 57 apartment units enjoy garage parking, a health facility and immediate access to restaurants, shopping, transportation and the university campus.  Valued at approximately $8.5 million, this landmark brick and steel structure set the bar for many student housing projects in the area.


An award winning project, revered by the community and listed in the National Historical Register.  In 2014 RES Development re-imagined and re-purposed a 1923, 3 story, 36,000sf brick and concrete school building into 20 luxury loft-style condominiums including the addition of an architecturally correct atrium entrance and parking garage, all within a park like setting.  The unmitigated success of this project clearly demonstrated RES Development’s ability to dream big and deliver.


Leveraging the advantages of pre-cast concrete construction, RES Development continues to set the pace in Iowa State University’s Campustown community with this new 7 story, 60,000sf mixed-use structure.  With luxury finishes and high-demand features throughout the building, student residents of the 46 apartment units also enjoy garage parking, access to on-site restaurants and are just steps away from the university.  Valued at approximately $15 million, this innovative offering injects new life into the west end of Campustown.


Recognizing the need for unique, professional oriented, contemporary luxury living options, RES Development is analyzing requirements and formulating plans to meet these needs and present to the community for their consideration.  This property, strategically located between the Iowa State University and ISU Research Park, will be a showcase for RES Development’s forward looking strategy.


Vision, creativity, flexibility and hard work were just some of the skills RES Development applied in 2006 when transforming this 24,000sf, 4 story, brick structure from its original 1917 design as a boarding house/hotel into 48 modern apartments now valued at $4.0 million.  Located literally across the street from the Iowa State University campus and 1 block from Campustown, these units are quick to rent and fill a highly desired price point.


Identifying an under-served multi-family demographic need, in 2015 RES Development quickly moved to develop 36 high-end apartments in a residential setting close to the rapidly expanding Iowa State University Research Park area.  At 36,000sf and valued at approximately $5.5 million, these three, 2-story buildings with attached common garages clearly filled an immediate need and are positioned to address continued growing demand in the area.
