Wherry Block Development

 

Located in Des Moines' Historic River Bend neighborhood, the Wherry Block Development, also known as The Shoppes at River Bend, is the newest commercial-retail development on Des Moines' Sixth Avenue corridor north of downtown.

 

Architectural cues for the addition and the proposed new buildings were taken from the surrounding neighborhood(s) and also the "Auto Row" area of Des Moines' Western Gateway. The new buildings are and will be constructed predominantly of brick with wood infill and large expanses of glass storefront each with the main entrances oriented toward Sixth Avenue.
