The number of apartments going up in Sioux Falls is surpassing last year at this time, which was a record construction year for Sioux Falls.
Nearly 600 apartment units have gone up in the first four months of the year. $55 million in apartment construction is going on throughout the city. A big chunk of that is the $25 million dollar, 276-unit apartment complex by Costco.
In all, the city issued more than $249 million in building permits through May. That's about $60 million less than the same time period last year.
