Like other Iowa cities, Hiawatha wants to offer more housing.
A 196-unit “luxury” apartment complex, The Crossing on Boyson, is now leasing and should be completed this year, said Colleen O’Hare, property manager.
Located at Boyson and Robins roads, the $35 million complex has seven buildings with 28 apartments each, with an array of studio and one-, two- and three-bedroom apartments available.
Site amenities include a large central clubhouse, with a seating area, TV, free hi-speed Wi-Fi, and a business center. It will have a resort-style swimming pool, grilling patio, bike storage and repair shop, and a 24-hour fitness center.
Professional management and maintenance staff will be located on-site, and a fence will go up this summer around the complex, O’Hare said.
The complex is a co-development by Anthony Properties of Dallas, Texas, and Perry Reid Properties of Lincoln, Neb. (About four years ago, the companies also developed a 178-unit apartment complex, called The Enclave at Dry Creek, in northeast Cedar Rapids.)
