Single-family homes, townhomes, apartments, office space and more are set to come to an eastern Sioux Falls multi-use development.
Burnsfield Village, on the northeast corner of 41st Street and Veterans Parkway, is slated for dozens of single-family homes and apartments with commercial strips surrounding them in what is being deemed a "live-work-play village."
“Creating a town center setting with personal services, offices for people like lawyers, hair cutting places plus plenty of places to park and play is coming,” said Perry Kolb, a principal engineer at KCDS Incorporated, which is setting up the land.
The cost of the full projects isn't public, but Kolb assumes the live-work project is among his largest projects. The apartments alone will cost $64 million.
There will be an estimated 500 housing units, 425 of which for Powderhaus Apartments, and 75 lots for single-family homes.
About fifty acres of commercial land — estimated for future commercial and office building space of 400,000 to 450,000 square feet — will be prepared next.
The master plan outlines about seven large buildings for either office or retail space facing 41st Street, one unit facing the corner of 33rd Street and Veterans Parkway and a middle "town center" with four adjacent buildings.
Another 75 lots are slated to the east of the apartments for single family homes.
At least four roundabouts are slated to allow traffic to move through the entrance commercial spaces and come into the middle part of the village. Street construction will begin after permitting is approved for through-streets, including one named after the former farmstead family of the land: Burns Avenue.
Sioux Falls’ Burns family, whose homestead sits on the very land to be developed, is working with Kolb in slowly parsing off land for the city’s permitting, sewer and other processes to prepare it for development.
“We’ve got interest and can anticipate quite a few lots will begin construction once we go through with streets," Kolb said. "By mid-summer you’ll see houses going in, once we sell to home builders.”
Although the housing will go up as soon as permitting and supply chains allow, Kolb said the farmstead will still keep its land until the final few lots on the southwest corner sell for retail.
There’s no timeline yet on what commercial space will develop or for whom.
“It takes time to put in the rooftops before commercial becomes viable, but I’m assuming that’s already begun,” Kolb said.
