 Title Housing Development for 321 State Avenue, Ames, IA

The City of Ames, Iowa is accepting proposals from qualified and experienced housing developers, interested in entering into a partnership with the City of Ames, to construct mixed income housing in the Ames community.


Ames, like many communities across America, has a continuing need for more affordable housing for low and moderate income households. One of the major goals and priorities of the City’s Adopted 2014-18 CDBG Five-year Consolidated Strategic Plan is “To create, expand, and maintain Affordable Housing for Homeless and Low-income persons”.


Through the use of its Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funding, the City of Ames has secured ownership of a 10+ acre tract of infill land located at 321 State Avenue in West Ames. The land is the site of the former Ames Middle School. The tract of land is also located in the City’s first Neighborhood Revitalization Strategy Area (NRSA), which will allow for a greater flexibility in the

development of mixed-income housing units.
