I'm sorry to report the final headquarters for Capital City Ambulance in Des Moines has been razed, it looks like recently as there is still heavy equipment in the driveway, and the ground has been bulldozed including the yard, shrubs, sidewalk, old radio transmitter pole, everything. It looks like the whole area is about to go through a major urban renewal as the building next door has been vacated and has a dumpster in the yard which was well tended in the google earth photos.

What a disappointment!!!

It was dark when I drove by otherwise I would have still snapped a few pics anyway but if I would have only gone there several months ago!!!

The only thing consistent is change.

If it's like most cities there will be good pics of the building in either the city photographer's office or the assessor's office.
Rochester has been shooting every property from 5 angles since the 70s, and all images are retained. It makes taxing and Permitting so much easier.

You might also try the city's GIS for access to the pictures from the latest photoshoot.
