The Flats at the Dean is a place where contemporary design and storied history meld together in flawless harmony. Where design details have been meticulously planned out. And every salvageable element of the historic building has been brought back to life in surprising ways.

At the Flats at the Dean, do more than live. Dream. Plan new adventures. Create community. Contribute to the city’s energy. And return home each night to a flat—your home—that inspires you to slow down, refresh, and renew. So you can do it all over again tomorrow.

With an unbeatable location on the corner of Main and Fourth Street, the Flats at the Dean places the city’s creative, entrepreneurial community on your doorstep. Your new home is steps away from some of Rapid City’s finest eateries and nightlife, art studios and coworking spaces, hip coffee shops and tap rooms, hiking trails, and boutique stores. 

This isn’t just luxury living. It’s a place of comfort. Positivity. Ingenuity. And it is unlike anything else Rapid City has seen.
