The Myers 1 property within the Bondurant Business Park II is a certified industrial site at the juncture of Hubbell Avenue and NE 78th Avenue in Bondurant, Iowa — a small suburb just 14 miles northeast of Downtown Des Moines (DSM). The site is 68.61 acres and is zoned M-1. The nearest major thoroughfares, the four-lane Highway 65 and Interstate 80, are both within three miles of the site. The Ankeny Regional Airport is a 10-minute drive from the site, and the Des Moines International Airport is a 31-minute drive. A business interested in the property would work with MidAmerican Energy Company on natural gas and electricity needs, and with the City of Bondurant for water and sewer connectivity.
Both leaders within the DSM region and the state of Iowa form collaborative relationships with companies that expand here, often providing support in navigating available financial incentives. Businesses can consider targeted business and industry incentives with potential access to city, state and federal dollars. Viability is determined by the project specifics and alignment of the industry sector. Incentives like Tax Increment Financing (TIF) and other property tax exemptions may be another consideration. Furthermore, the City of Bondurant often works with large commercial and industrial projects to fund and deliver necessary infrastructure improvements.
