This unique, historic, rug factory is being converted into a mixed-use office and retail space for lease. Originally built over time between 1910 and 1928 and run by accomplished 20th century businesswoman, Emma Owens Ferrington, the complex remains largely untouched until now. Historic finishes are being preserved and restored while modern amenities are being added. The complex was built in four distinct sections: A B C & D each with unique features.


Conveniently located just off I-235 at the northern gateway to Downtown Des Moines, the complex provides high visibility with over 29,000 cars per day passing by.



SECTION A :  Built in 1910, Section A is the oldest portion of the building. This 11- feet tall ceiling space has large storefront display windows fronting both Keosauqua Way and 12th Street. It would be great office, retail, or showroom space. It has tons of possibilities.
SECTION B : Space B is an accessible split-level office space that has access from both Keosauqua Way and 12th Street. Historic finishes include exposed steel structure, pressed metal ceilings, and hardwood floors. A large linear skylight, the entire length of the space, is being re-built and will provide abundant natural light. 
SECTION C-D (LEVEL 1) : Section C-D has a desirable open floor plan with tons of natural daylight and direct access to a tree-shaded patio area. This space has three large swinging carriage doors opening to patio space on Crocker Street with tons of possibilities. The space has tons of historic details including plaster walls, exposed steel columns and bead board ceiling.

SECTION C-D (LEVEL 2) : Open floor plan with large windows providing tons of daylight. Perfect for office space or showroom needs. This space has stunning upper level views to Downtown DSM. Two interconnected floors available if needed.
