Ames, Iowa


The site, initially seven properties totaling 1.8 acres with a mix of residential and commercial structures, including a gas station, aimed to transform into a vibrant pedestrian-friendly hub across from Iowa State University. Overcoming challenges like environmental contamination and lot consolidation, the 6-story project at Lincoln Way and Sheldon corner successfully revitalized the area. The Union on Lincoln Way, a well-designed 320,000 square foot building, features 537 beds in various floor plans, a boutique hotel, and 7,500 square feet of retail space. Its design not only enhances the site's vitality but also revitalizes the auto-centric environment with spacious outdoor areas, wider sidewalks, and reduced curb cuts. Now a focal point in downtown Ames, The Union offers a "cool" living and socializing experience. The residential component includes amenities like outdoor decks, a pool, club room, fitness center, study areas, and in-unit washers/dryers. Additionally, 20 boutique hotel rooms cater to visitors, providing unparalleled convenience near the campus.
