Foundation Park Gets First Tenant
A new company is coming to Sioux Falls and will be the first to locate at the new Foundation Park. Win Chill, LLC is a refrigerated food distribution center.
The 205,000 square foot, full-service refrigerated foods warehouse and distribution center will be the first project built in Foundation Park. This full-service facility will offer blast freezing, tempering, material handling and complete inbound and export rail service at the site through BNSF Railway.
The company is acquiring a 54-acre site from the Sioux Falls Development Foundation. The $5.7 million purchase will be the largest dollar-volume sale of land for industrial use in Sioux Falls history, according to Slater Barr, president of the Development Foundation.
“Foundation Park was created for exactly this kind of project, requiring as it does a large site with BNSF rail service and excellent transportation connections,” Barr said. “Win Chill will have ample space to expand their operation as the company grows.”
Win Chill expects the building to be operational by early spring of 2018. The company expects to employ 30 to 35 individuals in the first phase of Win Chill’s operation.
