A Storied Past

Des Moines’ boom years as a financial and insurance capital are perhaps best represented by the stunning Hippee Building. After construction was completed in 1913, it became the Midland Building and was also known as home to the Iowa Loan & Trust Company. We’ve preserved this twelve-story, Beaux-Arts gem to highlight heritage design elements and architectural touches.
