Worth the work

More about The Garfield:

The Garfield is a well known historic building in the heart of Rapid City, South Dakota.  Constructed in 1908, The Garfield served as a schoolhouse for more than a century.  Updated in 1934 and 1936 with substantial additions, this well utilized schoolhouse became a multi-level, multi-classroom community building.

Now, with the intention to honor its history, The Garfield will be transformed into a multi-family living complex. Large, spacious apartments meet wide, panoramic views of the Black Hills.  Airy loft options, flexible floorplan layouts, and built-in storage are all a part of the package.  Bike path access, bike storage, and repair rooms await.

Amenities that are music to your ears.

Within minutes of biking and walking trails, community green areas, and the heart of downtown Rapid City, The Garfield location offers superb perks.  The units themselves have unique floor plans, an open, airy feel, and plenty of storage.  Moveable kitchen islands and historic building pieces re-purposed and re-used throughout the new construction make this a modern dwelling with some serious charm.

If you're into biking and apartment living, you'll be happily surprised to find The Garfield equipped with a room dedicated to bike storage (and repair, if you're up for it!).

If you're looking for an apartment that's barrier free, but doesn't lack modern amenities and an upgraded feel, you can confidently schedule a viewing with us!
