City Administration Building
The purpose of this project is to construct a new City Administration Building to prepare for long-term growth, improve service to citizens, strengthen departmental collaboration, improve employee work environment, and maximize the taxpayer dollar. A groundbreaking ceremony took place on January 9, 2017. The $21.9 million project budget includes the construction of a three-story building—two finished stories, a third-story shell, footings and foundations for a future fourth floor, underground parking and storage, as well as room to grow as the city grows. The project budget also will allow investments to improve Van Eps Park and Dakota Avenue.
Space Needs Study
In 2012, the City of Sioux Falls conducted a study to analyze the office space needs of City government. The result was a five-year plan that included renovating the current City Hall and leasing additional square footage. The recommendation to build a facility in addition to City Hall has come after evaluating the need for more space and researching several other options.
The occupancy plan has been completed for the new City Administration Building. This is an important step so that the interior design of the building could be finalized. The occupancy plan allows room for growth in both the new building and at City Hall and will increase collaboration between areas that frequently interact.
