Premier Neighborhood In SF Taking Shape



Bookmark and Share

A new neighborhood in west Sioux Falls is beginning to taking shape, but it's not just any neighborhood.
The upper end homes come with a clear water lake in the backyard, complete with a pedestrian bridge.

Within just minutes, an 80 foot pedestrian bridge is taken from the flatbed of a truck and lifted into place.

Jim Soukup of Soukup Construction said, "It's probably 10, 15 years in the making."

It may not look like much now, but the 30 acre lake below the bridge will be one of the many attractions coming to the neighborhood called Cherry Lake Reserve near 12th Street and Tea Ellis Road in Sioux Falls.

Soukup said, "As we mine the sand and gravel out of the lake we always had that in mind to be able to recycle the land, if you want to call it that, into a housing development."

Thanks to Jim Soukup's love for fishing, not only is the groundwater lake stocked but a one to one and half mile bike trail will surround it.
    
Steve Van Buskirk of Van Buskirk Companies said,"We haven't had anything like this before where basically you have a private park, private beaches, private playground on the scale that his one has."

Beside the lake sits 155 plots for sale, meant for single family homes that range in price from $350,000 to $500,000.

Van Buskirk said, "We opened up about 45 lots. We sold eleven already and we've only had the streets in here for about five weeks."

With five basements already in the ground, it's dream come true for Soukup. An aspiration that Van Buskirk Companies isn't having any trouble selling.
    
Soukup said, "It's always been a vision of mine ever since I built this property to someday put houses up so it's been a long term vision but it's finally coming to a reality."

Soukup says there's also land available for commercial use, where he would like to see some restaurants go in.
