It's taken a while but the eight-story Artemis Hotel is finally under construction at the southeast corner of South 224th Street and Pacific Highway South in Des Moines, per PSBJ. The $45M hotel could be a kickstart to the nabe, which is looking to use it as a driving force in redevelopment. A big help to the hotel's sustainability will be plans for a light rail extension within walking distance. The Artemis is expected to open its doors in early 2015.
