Kettlestone Waukee

The City of Waukee broke ground on the new Kettlestone Development on November 1, 2013. Kettlestone is an exciting new mixed-use development being built along Grand Prairie Parkway, a 2.1-mile, four-lane road that opened to the public on December 1, 2015. Located between University Avenue and Interstate-80 and consisting of more than 1,500 acres, Kettlestone will feature an outdoor town center in a walkable environment with a variety of housing choices, retail spaces, green space, trails and office parks. The City of Waukee is partnering with property owners to make Kettlestone a reality.

Grand Prairie Parkway and the I-80 Interchange have been priority projects for the Waukee City Council for more than a decade. Based upon the proposed land uses over a 30-year period, Kettlestone could support up to 7,000 new housing units, 3.8-million square feet of commercial retail space and 5.5-million square feet of commercial office space. This equates to a total population of 17,500 and the potential for up to 25,000 new jobs within Kettlestone.
