Danielle Schroeder likes coming home. The Pierre native works as a nurse practitioner at the VA in Sioux Falls, where she lives in the Phillips Avenue Lofts.

Schroeder’s first impression of the months-old apartment complex was positive. Residents and visitors are greeted by a chicly decorated lobby, complete with modern, slate-colored sectionals. The furniture is softened by throw pillows and artfully draped blankets in a tastefully contrasting shade of gold.


“The lobby really sets the aesthetics for the whole building,” said Schroeder, gesturing to a frame on the wall. “The downtown photos are awesome. They’re all printed on wallpaper. It’s fun to walk around and check them all out.”

Schroeder moved into the building’s fourth floor over Labor Day weekend with her six-year-old Yorkie, Leopold.


“When I moved into my place I was the first person to live there, which is really nice,” she said on the elevator ride.

When we arrived on the fourth floor, a long hallway painted a deep peacock color, accented by white molding greeted us.

The white accents continued into the unit, although the walls in Schroeder’s living space are a far more neutral mushroom color.
