Canoyer Garden Center, with retail stores in Grimes and Ankeny, is expanding its Central Iowa operations with a new greenhouse and warehouse planned on 4.5 acres at 4169 109th St. in Urbandale, city records show. (See map below.)

Canoyer Grimes LLC, managed by Kyle Canoyer, paid Dallas County Partners $510,757 for the property in a transaction that was recorded May 4, Polk County real estate records show. In April, Canoyer Grimes took out a $4.5 million mortgage on the property through South Story Bank & Trust.
Dallas County Partners is managed by R&R Realty Group.

The Urbandale Planning and Zoning Commission and City Council have approved site plans for the proposed project, according to city officials. The council’s approval is contingent on several conditions that are still being worked out between city staff and the engineering firm preparing the site plans, according to the officials.

Plans include construction of a 78,000-square-foot facility, nearly 90% of which will be devoted to greenhouse space that will be built with transparent durable materials, according to city documents.

The facility is for growing plants that will be sold at the company’s retail centers, according to Canoyer. The greenhouse will allow the company to “grow 95%-plus of all of the products we sell,” he wrote in an email.

Construction of facility is expected to be completed in October, according to Canoyer.
