Sioux Falls in Minnehaha County, South Dakota — The American Midwest (Upper Plains)
Some of these buildings were vacant or had frequently revolving tenants during this time. Seventh Street, from Dakota Avenue to the Big Sioux River, became the focus of many development plans. Three of the major goals of urban renewal were the building of a new public library, the construction of a hotel, and affordable elderly housing.
The library and hotel were built along Eighth Street, with parking ramps and lots where Seventh Street once stood. Where Seventh Street met the river, buildings were razed to make way for the River Tower, an elderly housing facility with more than 150 units. Many additional historic buildings bordered by Seventh Street, Eighth Street, Phillips Avenue, and the Big Sioux River were razed to make way for more modem buildings.
