A new 40-acre entertainment district is coming to Waukee.
The Waukee City Council voted to approve the district, “The Quarter,” on Nov. 4. The new district, which will be located along the west side of Grand Prairie Parkway, will be the first of its kind for both Waukee and the state of Iowa. The Quarter plans to accommodate an entertainment and event venue, shopping, restaurants and an office space. Development is currently being led by Iowa businessman Daniel Pettit with funding for the project headed by the local investment firm Pan & Piper.
“There is nothing quite like this in Iowa right now. We wanted to bring a venue that could be a destination type location. An event space that could have something for everyone.
