Village on the River
Sioux Falls, South Dakota
JLG and the City of Sioux Falls are reimagining the standard parking garage to create a visually-striking, people-focused Live-Work-Play center in downtown Sioux Falls. Village on the River replaces a standard surface parking lot with a totally new and fresh public-private development for downtown to further enhance the vibrant downtown Sioux Falls streetscape.
The solution is a win-win for the City, the private developer, and the community: Village on the River will create 525 new parking spots on a high-demand surface lot that currently only holds 135, and by involving a private developer, the City will receive significant tax revenue that was not available on the surface lot. However, the parking literally takes a back seat to retail, restaurants, and offices, which front 10th street and hide the parking ramp tucked behind. A new hotel sits atop these services, and will make Village on the River the tallest building in Sioux Falls.
