Lewis, Sanford, PAve partnering in downtown project
Lewis Drug is headed back downtown – and this time Sanford Health and PAve are part of the building plan.
Sioux Falls-based Lewis will anchor a 12,000-square-foot building at 10th Street and Phillips Avenue. That’s the same site as the former Copper Lounge building, which collapsed last December, killing construction worker Ethan McMahon.
“Everyone involved in the project has been focused on honoring the history of the site while keeping pace with the progress of downtown Sioux Falls,” said Nikki Griffin, Lewis Drug corporate vice president. “We’re proud to work with great partners on this project and aspire to create a space that celebrates the strength of our community and the continued growth of downtown.”
The McMahon family said in a statement that they “appreciate being included in the planning of this project and believe it will be a great addition to downtown Sioux Falls.”
