SIOUX FALLS, SD (KELO) — A new apartment complex is now open in a busy corner of Sioux Falls. These are the Velthuis apartments.

“I used to walk here when it was still an empty lot,” Velthuis apartments tenant Tiana Rivera said.

For years this space behind the mall of businesses on the corner of 57th and Louise has been empty, but a new apartment development is now ready to open after years of planning.

“The Velthuis is a really, really special piece that we have. You know, as you’ve looked at it, it actually is sort of this open space that many people didn’t realize it was here,” Nate Welch, the Director of Investor relations at Mailbox Money said. “It’s on the corner of 57th and Louise, right off the interstate, a very, very dense population that many people wouldn’t think of a place that has a new development because it’s right in the middle of everything.”

It’s one of the reasons the new property is filling just as fast as it opens.

“This is a safe area, for me being from the East Coast, and not knowing too much,” Rivera said.

Rivera was one of the first tenants to move into the first building that opened in January; she says it’s much more than the location that drew her to her new home.

“Everything, it’s spacious, I love the kitchen, I love the pool, I love the reaction, I love the gym, I love the parking garage I’ve got downstairs,” Rivera said.

“One of the things that we really keep in mind is how it’s going to feel like a home. So, you know, you think about the aspect of a person driving into a garage, that aspect of them driving into their own space,” Welch said. “The other part of it is we made sure to kind of have those wide open spaces, so adding those added extra touches to it like a walk in pantry, floor to ceiling windows, allows it to feel more open.”

Mailbox Money recently added several new multi-housing developments in Sioux Falls, all with the goal of creating elevated apartment living.

“Sometimes apartments get that wrap of it doesn’t feel quite like home. But when you can give them those options, that kind of they get to pick and choose what feels right for them,” Welch said.

The Velthuis will be hosting a public open house on Thursday, June 6, from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. with food trucks, beverages tents and tours of all of the different units to choose from. The rents range from $845 for a studio to $1,555 for a 2-bedroom 2-bathroom unit.
