Valvoline will build a shop on the north side of the medical clinic that’s under construction at 85th Street and Louise Avenue.

More businesses are coming to the area of 85th Street and Minnesota Avenue.

Valvoline plans to start construction soon on an oil change and service center on the northeast corner of the intersection. It will be next to a future urgent care center from Sioux Falls Specialty Hospital and is expected to open later this year.

Hardee’s restaurant also is coming to the area. The chain will open next year on a lot adjacent to Schulte Subaru, said Brad Gullickson of Harr & Lemme Real Estate, who represented the restaurant.

“They chose the location just west of the new Subaru lot after doing their market analysis and feel it will be good for them,” he said. “They also considered proximity to their other stores.”

It will be the fourth Hardee’s in Sioux Falls.

Since Walmart opened last year, activity in the area has been steady. Raquel Blount of Lloyd Cos. said she sold all available land next to Walmart as well as the property for Valvoline.

“Walmart has been a huge driver to attract these stores and services,” she said. “None of them would have purchase here for many years without the Walmart store.”

She currently is marketing land to the east on 85th Street toward Cliff Avenue as well as lots close to the nearby Landscape Garden Centers, which is on Minnesota Avenue.
