Come see it for yourself!


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 bringing this spectacular building to completion. Today, Rumely Lofts is once again reinventing itself and setting the standard for affordable loft-style living!
