In an exclusive announcement for WHO 13 News, Johnston Mayor Paula Dierenfeld shared plans for the city council to vote Tuesday night to move forward with “Bombers.” The new golf hotel-restaurant-entertainment venue is being built in partnership between the city and Stoye & Kann Development. It represents the cornerstone of a bold new vision for south Merle Hay Rd. Entrance to Johnston.
A Stoye & Kann press release describes Bombers as:
“An $80 million project to bring a 45,000 square foot golf and entertainment venue to the Des Moines Metro. Located at the intersection of I-80/I-35 and Merle Hay Road (5055 Merle Hay Road, Johnston), the project will include a 100-room mid-upscale hotel attached to the Golf Driving Venue and a children’s arcade, several themed bars, and the city’s largest rooftop bar.
The venue will feature a full service restaurant and will host special events with private meeting rooms and unique event spaces for birthdays, corporate events and community gatherings. This community-wide public/private development will serve as the official stop between the Trestle-to-Trestle Trail and the Johnston-to-Urbandale bike trails along Beaver Creek.
Three additional commercial outlet buildings will be available for high-end retail, specialty restaurants, multi-story offices and flexible commercial space.
Cutting-edge technology is essential for a facility of this magnitude, and Bombers will be no exception. Using the latest gamification software from industry leader Toptracer Range, guests can participate in golf challenges or select multisport games. These options provide variety and engage guests of all ages and skill levels.
Food + Brews Bomber’s full-service restaurant has been designed with family-friendly dining in mind, so there’s plenty of choice for the youngest members of the family. As well as the family menu, guests can also choose from our gourmet platters and an extensive selection of local and craft beers.”
