After a lengthy debate at Tuesday nights Sioux Falls City Council meeting a controversial housing complex is moving forward in southern Sioux Falls.

According to KDLT News the project dominated the discussion Tuesday night at city council, with over an hour of debate between councilors, builders and neighbors.

The 3-building, 96-unit apartment complex project will likely break ground in 2019 and will go up near 85th Street and Louise Avenue.

The Sioux Falls city council voted 7 to 1 to re-zone the five-acre lot from agriculture to apartment/residential with one extra condition.

Costello Companies will have to have a minimum 40 foot setback on the south side where many of the concerned neighbors live.

The requirement is usually only 15 feet.
