An iconic Downtown Rapid City building left been vacant for years will once again make room for business.
The old Motor Service Building on Saint Joseph St. will soon transform into an innovative and contemporary shared office space called "The Garage-Rapid City."
The relatively new concept allows independent creative business people, such as architects or graphic artists to rent a space temporarily or long-term for personal work space.
The building will feature more than 10 private offices, more than 12 private, assigned work stations, and additional first-come, first-serve open work stations.
The $500,000, seven thousand square-foot project will include office space, cubicles, and walk-in work space.
Approximately 2,700 square-feet will be available for permanent office or retail space.
Managing Partner, Peter Anderson, says the design requires many upgrades, but will stay true to the retro-industrial look that it's known for.
"We're very excited about taking this 80-year-old building that's been an icon in Downtown Rapid City for so many years and re-purpose it for a modern use.," said Anderson.
Anderson says it will give people who normally work alone, another option, and the opportunity to work alongside other people.
The co-working space is two blocks away from Main Street Square, across the street from the new Trinity Eco Prayer Park.
Construction of "The Garage-Rapid City" is slated to begin March 31st and finish by the Summer.
