    The Grove

    Grove

    This place looks pretty sweet. A lot of free stuff but does anybody know how much rent would be per month? They are well on their way to being finished on the east side of Jack Trice. Looks like they will be done by this summer.

    If you want to know how much it costs why don't you call them at 515-232-1046?

    Re: The Grove

    Isn't "The Grove" the breakfast place on Main St?

    Edit: From that site, it looks like a more expensive and louder Freddy Court, except the people there are out to make a profit rather than to break even. I guess if you've got the money to toss around it could be alright, but I would never have wanted to live in a place like that.

    Also from the site, What the heck is a "Harvard Style Library"?

    I didnt see freddy court, i saw more of a more expensive (Sterling) University Plains. Which wouldnt be bad, i mightve lived at sterling longer than a year had their building quality not been absolutely horrible.. that and the furnace being electric caused some ridiculously large electric bills that year.

    Where exactly are these being built? I have driven by JTS a few times recently and have not noticed them... I'm either blind, or they are tucked away behind some other structures?

    It's on South 16th literally right next to the Ames Christian School. At first I thought they were building a gym, it's that close.

    That is not the Grove. That is a different apartment complex that is going to have govt. subsidized housing. The grove is going into the east of the apartment that is already up. They ground work has not yet started on the Grove.

    Both buildings are hoping to get some of the VetMed students from the trailer parks.
