City of Des Moines: The Waterland City
Des Moines is a beautiful and unique waterfront community conveniently located midway between Seattle and Tacoma. With direct access to Sea-Tac International Airport, major highways, and commuter rail, Des Moines is an immensely reachable city. This dynamic municipality offers a vibrant downtown commercial district, a full-service Marina, and an excellent residential community with diverse demographics.
The pedestrian-friendly Commercial District features retail, office, restaurant, and residential property development opportunities. Adjacent to the downtown area, the Des Moines Marina offers access to a fishing pier and boardwalk, as well as one of the region’s most vibrant seasonal Farmer’s Markets. Just south is Saltwater State Park and Redondo Beach. These provide public beach access, natural areas, and numerous recreational opportunities to the public.
The Pacific Highway South commercial area offers a variety of multi-family, retail, lodging, office, and light industrial properties perfect for business investment opportunities. The Des Moines Creek Business Park contains over 2.2 million square feet of commercial property and is home to the Federal Aviation Administration’s northwest regional headquarters. Additionally, Highline College and a Central Washington University satellite campus provide a trained and ready labor force. Low land costs and lease rates, as well as available commercial properties for economic development, make Des Moines an ‘undiscovered’ business opportunity in the Puget Sound region.
