Share Article

Demolition now underway at future site of 23 Twenty Lincoln, located directly across from ISU’s front gate.

Development has begun at the future site of 23 Twenty Lincoln, a modern student apartment community located directly across the street from the front gate of Iowa State University’s campus in Ames, Iowa. The community will provide superior access to campus and unmatched modern amenities for students attending ISU. The building will be completed for the 2015 academic year.

The 320-bed community, developed by Gilbane Development Company, will be the first new, fully amenitized student housing development in ISU’s Campustown neighborhood since 2004. “23 Twenty Lincoln combines an unmatched location with top quality amenities which exemplify Gilbane’s commitment to provide “The Next Level of Student Housing® to ISU students,” noted Robert V Gilbane, Chairman and CEO of Gilbane Development Company. “It is directly across the street from campus, allowing residents to walk to the Memorial Union, Cyclone Sports Complex, and ISU’s academic core within minutes, and offers a private enclosed courtyard, clubhouse, and other amenities not typically found in such a proximate location. What an ideal location for students to flourish.”

Community amenities will include a controlled entryway, lobby computer center and coffee bar, Hi-def TV lounge, state-of-the-art fitness center with cardio and weights, tanning room, study lounges, and a third floor clubhouse that opens directly onto a private landscaped courtyard featuring a hammock garden, fire pit and an outdoor BBQ kitchen. The property will provide free Wi-Fi and internet, bike storage and off street parking.

Each residential unit is apartment-styled, fully furnished with private bathrooms and bedrooms, in-unit side-by-side washer/dryers, fully applianced kitchen with granite counters, large walk-in closets, high speed internet, cable and flat screen TV. Students will enjoy 24/7 resident services, roommate matching, and individual, by-the-bed leases.

The temporary leasing center, located at 206 Welch Avenue, will open in Spring 2014 for students to secure an apartment. 23 Twenty Lincoln will be leased and managed by Asset Campus Housing (ACH). For more information, please visit or call 515-329-0609.

The project will enhance Campustown by adding over 5,000 square feet of Class A retail. The retail space will front directly onto Lincoln Way and will feature areas with 16’ ceiling, large storefront windows and a retail location with a drive through window. Gilbane Development Co. has had preliminary discussions with several local tenants and has received calls from other interested retailers. For retail leasing information, please contact Robert Gagliardi, Property Manager with Gilbane Development Company, at 401-456-5989 or rgagliardi (at) gilbaneco (dot) com.
