La Mie set to into a newly renovated space at Two Ruan

DES MOINES, June 16, 2016 – The former Winston’s Pub & Grille, located on the skywalk level of the Two Ruan building, 601 Locust St., is about to get a facelift. La Mie, which already has one downtown location, will move into the 5,000 square-foot renovated space in the fall.

“La Mie is a great fit for the building and for downtown,” said Melissa Duffy, senior real estate manager at the Ruan Center, which includes the Ruan building and Two Ruan. Owner Joe Logsdon noted, “There are 10,000 people within a three-minute walk of that place. We’re excited about it.”

Heath D. Bullock, Senior Vice President and Iowa Markets Leader, represented Two Ruan in the transaction.
