Several Projects Changing Sioux Falls' Landscape

January 13, 2014, 6:07 PM by Sammi Bjelland

Several Projects Changing Sioux Falls' Landscape

The Sanford PREMIER Center is just one of several projects changing the face of Sioux Falls. 

Once completed the events center, the Arena and convention center will be known as Sanford Place. But that's not the only big-time facility going up in Sioux Falls.

City officials hope these new facilities will add to the quality of life for its residents.

There are many big projects in the works for Sioux Falls.

One of the fastest growing areas, seeing a lot of growth, is the northwest part of town; where the Sanford Sports Complex is still under construction. The Complex will be the base of several sporting events in the years to come, once it's finished.

The Sanford Pentagon and FIELDHOUSE are both completed and being used for events like basketball, indoor soccer and training camps.

While there are already hotels and restaurants popping up in the open fields west of the airport, there are many more facilities in the works.

One big facility planned for that area is the SCHEELS IcePlex. This multi-rink, indoor ice skating facility is being sponsored by the Sioux Falls Stampede and Ice Sports Association. The facility will cost $11.1 Million, complete with three ice rinks, lockers and heated viewing areas.

Organizers hope to have it open to the public this September.

The IcePlex is still looking for final funding, and its not alone.

A new Community Indoor Tennis Center is also looking for money. The tennis facility will house seven courts and other amenities, with a final cost of $4 Million. The groundbreaking is currently scheduled for this spring.

One project in another part of town, that's caused a stir for some, is the proposal of an indoor pool at Spellerberg Park. This is part of the City's master aquatics plan, and some residents in the area are afraid it will bring too much traffic to the area.

Concerned residents gathered enough signatures to put this project to a vote on the April ballot.
