Building Overview / Details


Discover why history plays such an important role at Rumely Lofts. Stained concrete floors, exposed brick walls, tall windows, and 12-14’ ceilings lend the texture and character of Rumely’s history while evoking a spacious and airy feeling. With a complete building renovation, we have created modern living spaces that still feel like they have stories to tell. The brick walls and concrete floors look stylish and rustic, but updates to the building mean you do not have to compromise on modern conveniences. With reasonable rents in the downtown area, incredible views of Downtown Des Moines, and a central location, Rumely Lofts is a building you can’t pass up.


Rumely Lofts is the newest chapter in the century-long history of innovators who called the building at 104 Southwest 4th Street their home. The building was originally built as a branch office for the M. Rumely Company, at the time quoted as “the largest threshing machine concern in the world, and one of the largest of all implement builders.” In 1911, the Des Moines Drug Company purchased the building and added the top two floors to bring this spectacular building to completion. Today, Rumely Lofts is once again reinventing itself and setting the standard for affordable, loft-style living!
