What is the Urban Loop?

The Urban Loop is an economic development area supported by a network of highly accessible, interconnected traffic routes, making Urbandale a center of opportunity for business investment and workforce talent.

The highly accessible development area offers retail, office, flex, warehouse, and light industrial space.

There are over 700 acres of land ready and waiting for a groundbreaking ceremony to inaugurate the next new business facility in this strategic location.
