CSD property could add mini-restaurant row

By Jodi Schwan

Part of the former Communication Service for the Deaf campus is looking like it could develop into a food court-style retail center.

Marco’s Pizza will be the first tenant in a new 5,500-square-foot building on East 10th Street east of Mable Avenue. It’s the third Sioux Falls location for the fast-growing pizza chain and the 10th in South Dakota.

“We have been working on an East 10th Street location for nearly two years,” said Josh Holdinghausen, the local franchisee for Marco’s. “East 10th really fills a void in our delivery area in Sioux Falls. We will also have a pickup window to make it easy for people to grab dinner on their way home from work.”

The other two tenant spaces are attracting interest from restaurants, said Ryan Tysdal of Van Buskirk Cos., who is handling the leasing for the center.  Tysdal is is mid-deal with a tenant for the west end of the building and said “if everything comes together, it will be a very popular business that will take that space.”

“East 10th Street continues to be one of the most viable retail corridors in the city,” he said. “The food and retail tenants on East 10th Street do very well.”

The new retail center is scheduled to break ground next spring. An additional piece of land at 10th and Mable also is under contract and scheduled to close at the end of the year, Tysdal said.

There also is activity at the remaining buildings on the campus. The historic Simpson building is being marketed as individual office suites.

“We saw demand in the market for affordable one-room suites and wanted to try to help fill that need,” said Michael Martin of NAI Sioux Falls, who has the office space listed.

Rents start at $225 a month for a 10-foot-by-11-foot space. Larger offices also could fit a couch and table, he said. The building includes two break rooms a conference room, a waiting area downstairs and an upstairs common room.

“It’s a very unique historic building with tall ceilings and exposed quartzite but is still modern and handicapped accessible,” Martin said. “And the park-like setting adds to the feel of the building as well.”

 

The newer building, which was a call center, is for sale. It’s being renovated to convert it to more general office space.
