Jackie Johansen, principal of Shattered Glass Development, has finalized the acquisition of property on a high-profile intersection in downtown Des Moines.
Shattered Holdings LLC, managed by Johansen, paid 204 Investments LLC $1.33 million for the property at 204 S.W. Second St., Polk County real estate records show. The property is valued at $686,000.
The nearly half-acre parcel incudes a 16,392-square-foot building that was built in phases beginning sometime between 1880 and the early 1990s. Central Iowa Mechanical had occupied the site for several decades until moving to a new location in 2021.

The parcel, located on the northwest corner of Southwest Second Street and Martin Luther King Jr. Parkway, is near several downtown destinations, including Principal Park, the Science Center of Iowa and the Court Avenue entertainment district.


Johansen has said the warehouse portion of the structure likely will be razed and the older portion of the building, which is considered historical because of its age, would be preserved. No structural changes would be made to original portion of the building, she said.


Johansen previously has said that she is considering development of a multilevel structure that would include unique uses such as a food hall, music and arts programs, and educational offerings including a real estate school.
