The Foundry is located on the site of the former Campus Book Store, so you can walk to class at Iowa State University in around 10 minutes, or get there in two minutes when you go by bike. It’s a six-minute drive to Main Street, and nine minutes to North Grand Mall. There’s heated underground parking in your building, and your bike will be safe in the secure storage area.
When you live at The Foundry, you’ll be happy to spend your free time hanging out at home. Start your day with a workout at the 24-hour fitness center, then get a healthy glow in the tanning booth. Back in your furnished apartment, throw your gym clothes in the full-size washer dryer, then freshen up with a hot shower in your modern bathroom.
Grab some coffee and cereal and eat at the breakfast bar, or relax on the sofa and work your way through your reading list. When you need to focus on college work, get to work at the desk in your room, or head to the private study area where you’ll find a bank of computers and printers.
With work out of the way, you’re free to play video games, poker or Pictionary in the games room or make your way down to street level and browse the rails at Barefoot Campus Outfitters, and catch up with friends at Starbucks.
You’ll find everything you need to cook up a storm in your modern kitchen, which is fitted with stainless steel appliances and granite countertops. But if your cupboards are bare, tuck into tacos at Es Tas Bar & Grill, or get stir fry and noodles from Chinese Home Style Cooking.
