The Equitable Building is one of the city's most prestigious landmark buildings located at Sixth and Locust Street in the Central Business District of Des Moines. Once known as the tallest building west of the Mississippi, this nineteen-story multi-tenant office building offers investors the opportunity to own one of the most recognizable buildings in the Midwest strategically located in the heart of Iowa's capital city.

Originally constructed in 1923, the building has been periodically renovated and updated since that time. The newest addition to this ever-evolving site are the high-end residential condos located on the upper floors. The conversion process began in 2006 when floors 11 through 19 began being demolished to shell condition for condominium construction. A total of 146,285 square feet is presently vacant, consisting of vacant retail and office space and demolished shell office floors intended for condominium construction.

Centrally located in the heart of downtown Des Moines with easy access to Interstate 235 via 6th Avenue.
