Sioux Falls Sports and Leisure District’s ‘boom’ has been a bust

4 min read

It’s high time to declare a reduction on the so-called Sports activities and Leisure District.

I’m guessing there is a group of individuals who would prefer you neglect the expression completely. I, myself, have not. And I am painfully reminded of that each and every time I generate to or via the region encompassing the campus that is home to the Leading Center, Sioux Falls Stadium, Howard Wood Area and the Arena. This is a distinctive very little component of town, to say the the very least. Shoe-horned into an place bounded by the Covell Lake, the airport, and the first industrial park, it is mainly comprised of industrial organizations interspersed with a handful of pockets of household housing.

At one issue, the space was almost a gateway to Sioux Falls. West Russell was the key artery involving the interchange of Interstates 29 and 90 and downtown. With the airport close by, as perfectly, the location was comprehensive of lodges, restaurants, and cafes to greet travelers or provide a respite for these with lengthy layovers or cancelled flights. And, with sites like the Time Out, Casa del Rey, a seafood cafe that was not Purple Lobster, and even a comedy club at what was then the Airport Holiday break Inn, there ended up motives to venture over to the space, even if there was nothing at all going on at the Arena.
