Explore all of the amenities that make Harbach Lofts great – designed with quality in mind.

We’ve reimagined the hip urban loft and packed it with features to create a distinctive and relaxing lifestyle.


We’re bike friendly

Bike in a hallwayHarbach Lofts provides a complete package of amenities for bicyclists. Whether you’re an avid cyclist or just enjoy an occasional ride to Gray’s Lake, Harbach has you covered. Our Bike Lounges in each building are a bicyclist’s dream. You’ll find a workshop with tuning stands, air pumps, washing stations, benches to change into your cycling shoes, and maps to plan your adventure. The fitness center includes the latest in spin bike technology. Our commitment to bicyclists even includes special bike ramps on the stairs to make rolling your bike a breeze.

Bike security and convenience

Most of our apartments are designed with areas to keep your bike close by, but for added convenience secure bike storage hooks and lockers are available in the Bike Lounges. When you’re not out exploring the trails your bike has a home here.

Quick Access to three great trails

Harbach Lofts is literally the hub of the trail system in central Iowa. The trails at our front door are your gateway to adventure. Within minutes you can be gliding along the Des Moines River or cruising down the Ingersoll Avenue entertainment corridor.

Areas to hang out and relax

Our lobby will make your friends drool with envy. Comfy seating, huge windows, and free wi-fi make it a go-to place to chill out. Grab a cup of coffee at our in-house café and curl up with a good book or your laptop. The Scoreboard Room offers big-screen TV viewing and a kitchen bar. Celebrate with friends or catch a big game.

New kitchen with stainless steel applicancesBrand new full-size appliances

We didn’t skimp on appliances with top-quality stainless steel stoves, microwaves, dishwashers and refrigerators. And did we mention that most refrigerators have in-the-door water and ice dispensers. Forget about those small apartment size washer dryer combos. Harbach Lofts includes only full-size washers and dryers.
