Economic leaders in Sioux Falls announced Friday its anchor tenant has been named for a new 800-acre industrial park in northwest Sioux Falls.

Win Chill, a refrigerated food storage and distribution center facility, will be built on a 54-acre parcel at Foundation Park. Legacy Development CEO Norman Drake said the facility will provide cold-storage for food companies in order to ship products to and from Sioux Falls and surrounding areas.

Sioux Falls Development Foundation Vice President Dean Dziedzic said the warehouse marks the launch of the industrial park. He said the $5.7 million land purchase is the largest dollar-volume land sale for industrial use in state history.

The warehouse will be connected to rail service via BNSF Railway, which will allow the business to send and receive pallets of food products. Initial designs can support food manufacturers in a four-state region, the Sioux Falls Economic Foundation said.

Dziedzic said Marion Road will be extended and paved to Foundation Park by the fall. More than half of the roads in the industrial park will also be paved, as well. 

Foundation Park is located at the northwest corner of the Interstate 29 and Interstate 90 intersection, about 3.5 miles southeast of Crooks.

The storage facility is expected to be open by Spring 2018.
