It started with an idea.

And happened because a group of residents came together to add enahnce life to an area of town that has been ignored for far too long—East of 5th.

The renewal of the Dean Building—and the Flats at the Dean—was driven by a group of local community members who live and work in Rapid City… people who have a desire to contribute to the growth and prosperity of Rapid City, today and in the future. The group has worked very closely with Architect Eric Monroe, senior architect and principal of TSP, to create a space that is warm and welcoming while also keeping the historic, industrial feel of the building. Construction and general contracting is by Stephen Burgess of Dean Kurtz Construction.

The Dean Building received financing from the Rapid Fund, which offers loans to create quality job opportunities and business expansion in Rapid City. Additional financing for the project was provided by Dacotah Bank, located in the East of 5th District.
