When Steve King, deputy state historic preservation officer, looks at the Des Moines Riverfront YMCA, he sees a downtown landmark and an example of midcentury architecture, an era that emphasized functionality and clean building lines.
Both development teams are expected to take their proposals to city leaders for feedback within 30 to 45 days, Gibbs said.
Two unnamed potential buyers are preparing proposals to demolish the YMCA and build a mixed-use development with retail space and housing, said Linda Gibbs, one of the listing agents for the property and a senior vice president with CBRE/Hubbell Commercial.
