JSC Properties is proposing to redevelop a large portion of land in the neighboring Market District in Des Moines Iowa that could include residential, office, hotel, and retail and entertainment venues. JSC Properties will present its plans to the Des Moines City Council at a work session Monday morning. Later Monday, the Des Moines City Council will vote to receive and file the proposal, and direct staff to negotiate details on the sale and purchase of six blocks of city-owned property in the Market District. Jim Cownie is owner of JSC Properties. The Market District consists of 260 acres south of the East Village. It’s largely industrial spaces and warehouses, but several new offices and apartment buildings have been built in recent years.
