A second house is being built this year as part of LifeScape’s five-year initiative to increase affordable housing for Sioux Falls residents with special needs.

A building permit was issued April 29 to build a 5,475 square foot house at 3320 N. Fourth Ave. The single-level, eight-unit duplex will cost about $855,000 to build, the release states.

As Sioux Falls continues to grow, the need for safe, comfortable and affordable housing for residents with special needs also rises, said Jessica Wells, LifeScape foundation president.

LifeScape serves about 430 individuals in its supporting living program in Sioux Falls. There are 44 people on wait lists for housing assistance from the nonprofit, which has 38 housing locations scattered across Sioux Falls neighborhoods right now.
