About clemens


About the Clemens Building


Located above Bubba, the boutique-style apartments include 44 one- and two-bedroom units. All units on the ground floor and several on the top floors are designed to be two-story, loft style. In-unit laundry is included. Redevelopment has preserved the look and feel of the structure, providing a rich and sophisticated style to a contemporary layout. The latest amenities reinvigorate the brown brick façade and terra-cotta detailing, highlighted by showroom sized windows throughout.


For Des Moines professionals, enjoy the 5–10 minute walk to work with all major employers. Clemens also provides convenient access to Des Moines’ greatest attractions such as the Des Moines Farmers’ Market, Principal Riverwalk, jogging and bicycle trails, Winefest, Pappajohn Sculpture Park, and the 80/35 Music Festival. This convenient location allows access to the entertainment district but offers quiet tranquility to come home to at night.


Enjoy shared rooftop space including outdoor lounge seating areas for gatherings. The indoor shared spaces include a multifunctional community and game room with a pool table, lounge seating, and a flat-screen TV. Exercise room with equipment and bicycle storage space are also included. On-floor storage space is available for each unit.
