The Brady

650 16th Street, Des Moines, IA 50314
Brady Studio Apartment Exterior Building


Take a step back to the roaring 1920’s when you enter this historic 35-unit apartment building!  The Brady boasts wide hallways and high ceilings in the period-decorated common areas.   As you enter each spacious studio, you can’t help but be impressed by the huge bay windows and window seat featured in each unit.  In addition, the studios have eat-in kitchens with full sized appliances, a dressing room off the restroom, large closets, and beautiful woodwork.  Most units have updated kitchens with built in microwaves.  The Brady also offers a limited number of garages, free off street parking, limited access doors, and coin operated laundry facilities.

The Brady is in the heart of one of Des Moines most historic, vibrant and celebrated areas – Sherman Hill.  Enjoy beautiful Victorian architecture at every turn.  The Brady is across the street from Hoyt-Sherman Place, and walking distance to Methodist Hospital, as well as a host of local shops and restaurants.  The Brady is just a few minutes from downtown Des Moines, or to I-235 access.

The Brady is a 100% non-smoking community, including inside the apartments and the grounds.

These are some of the policies for The Brady Apartments.  Please consult your Rental Agreement and Rules and Obligations of Tenancy for a complete list of policies.

Rent Payments:

All rent is due on or before the first day of each month and can be paid through your tenant portal (preferred) or with a money order or personal check mailed to or put in the drop slot of our Ingersoll office. Cash payments should be made in person during normal business hours, and should not be mailed or put in the drop slot.

Any rent not received by the 4th of any month is subject to a $25.00 late fee. There is an additional $35.00 late fee imposed after the 10th, if any portion of your rent has not been received.

If you know your rent will be late, kindly contact our office as soon as possible to make arrangements for payment.


We welcome your spayed or neutered cat with an additional $200 deposit and an additional $10 per month rent.  A short pet addendum to the rental agreement will be required.  Dogs and rodents are not permitted on the premises at any time.  Fish and some caged birds may be permitted with written permission from the landlord.


Electricity is paid by the tenant and should be set up directly with MidAmerican Energy.

Cable television outlets are provided in each unit.  In the unlikely event a unit does not have a cable outlet, the landlord will give permission for one to be installed.   Satellite dishes may not be placed in any common area not specifically rented by the tenant (such as the yard or roof) and may not be installed in such a way that it damages any part of the premises.


The Brady is 100% nonsmoking community.  Smoking is not allowed anywhere on the premises, including inside the apartments, in the hallways and laundry rooms, and on the grounds.
