“This is a high-impact project for Waukee,” said Nick Jensen, owner of , a residential development, construction and property management company in central Iowa. “There is no other building like this now.”
Where does the name “West Light” come from?
The West Light project is located on the Waukee border with Clive. “The property is a gateway to Waukee going west,” said Nick Jensen, owner of Caliber Iowa LLC. At night, Calibre’s Standard on the 36th draft in Ankeny is illuminated and can be seen a mile or more away. “The lighting element is something I’m very proud of in this building, and [West Light] will also have pronounced lighting. The Caliber Iowa team brought the two concepts together to create West Light, Jensen said.
