Western Gateway - The Western Gateway is 8th St to MLK and Grand to West MLK. The Meredith Corporation office campus and ING/Equitable of Iowa corporate office building serve as anchors (or "bookends") on the west and east ends of the project site. Land on either side of the Western Gateway will be prime development sites which will be able to accommodate buildings of 250,000 square feet or larger.

The purpose of the Western Gateway is two-fold. First, the project is intended to serve as a catalyst for major new development to create a natural extension of the downtown core. Second, the project will provide a highly attractive public amenity to serve as a memorable entry into the downtown and attraction for the entire community.

The Western Gateway neighborhood is proud of their beautiful green spaces and their dedication to the arts. Visit the Temple of Performing Arts and enjoy a show or a concert. Stop in the new downtown public library or relax by the beautiful and peaceful gardens. Sip on a warm latte from Ritual Café as you wander through the Papajohn Sculpture Garden....enjoy the Western Gateway!
