Set to open in 2019, Levitt Shell Sioux Falls will be located within the city’s beautiful and historic namesake, Falls Park, and will be known locally as “Levitt at the Falls.” This expansive and verdant park features some of the city’s oldest buildings as well as the waterfalls, which drop an average of 7,400 gallons of water down 100 feet of two billion year-old pink quartzite each second. Upon completion, the currently underused entrance to Falls Park, known as Falls Park West, will be transformed into the site of a state-of-the-art outdoor concert venue, spanning from downtown’s bustling 5th Street north to the park. The fluid, organic shape envisioned for Falls Park West pays homage to the way the Big Sioux River interacts with downtown Sioux Falls.
In addition to being the largest city in South Dakota, Sioux Falls is one of the most diverse as well---with over 60 languages spoken in the Sioux Falls School District. Centrally located on the city’s bus line, surrounded by distinct neighborhoods and directly adjacent to the city’s increasingly vibrant downtown, Levitt Shell Sioux Falls will be easily accessible to a wide range of socioeconomic groups and people of all ages. Levitt Shell Sioux Falls will celebrate and build upon the inclusive spirit that already exists in this particular green space, while creating a permanent space to host community events and highlight local traditions.
Friends of Levitt Shell Sioux Falls is currently undergoing its capital campaign, with construction of the pavilion slated to begin in 2018.
