The Financial Center in downtown Des Moines, Iowa would undergo a $59.3 million renovation that would include converting 13 floors to an upscale, 190-room hotel and adding a restaurant, coffee shop and market on the first floor.   Lawmark LP, the owner of the 25-story Financial Center, located at 207 Seventh St., is also planning a rooftop bar. The remaining 12 floors would continue as offices.  The Financial Center was built between 1972 and 1973. The building includes 365,674 square feet of space.  Lawmark plans to participate in Mid-American Energy’s Energy Efficiency Program and plans high-efficiency lighting on all 25 floors and in the parking garage, add sensor light controls on the floors occupied by the hotel, and upgrade mechanical systems and elevator equipment.  The renovation will begin this summer.  For more information on this and other upcoming hotel construction and renovation projects in the planning, design, pre-construction and construction phase including who is involved and their contact information and Preferred Vendor Directory please visit: and subscribe today.
