Essex Corp. recently broke ground on its latest community. The Parkwood is the future site of a new active 55-plus living community with 133 apartments, an amenity selection and a location in one of the fastest-growing cities in South Dakota. The development will be complemented with community rooms, outdoor living spaces, and modern finishes. The Parkwood is slated to open spring 2023 and is currently taking inquiries about future rentals online.

Amenities and features at The Parkwood will include one- and two-bedroom rental apartments with the option of a den, open floor plans, walk-in closets, in-unit washers and dryers, covered balconies or terraces, climate-controlled under-building parking, coffee shop, salon, library, theater, guest suite, transportation, light housekeeping, weekday evening meal options and continental breakfasts, a dog wash station, and a car wash bay.

“There is a strong demand for 55-plus active living spaces,” says Mike McGillick, chief executive officer and partner of Essex. “Essex’s value is in its 45 years of industry experience that shapes our full-service approach. We are looking forward to developing, constructing, marketing, and managing the community, in addition to meeting all our new Sioux Falls neighbors.”

Essex executives announced its plans for the development, showing the professionally developed site plan and renderings that offer a convenient, comfortable, and maintenance-free setting for its residents, with opportunities for enhanced socialization and friendships.
