LongHorn Steakhouse is the latest national restaurant to announce its new location at Empire Place, the new retail redevelopment along West 41st Street in front of The Empire Mall.

LongHorn Steakhouse is the second national retailer to announce opening its first Sioux Falls location at Empire Place. Chipotle Mexican Grill committed to its first South Dakota restaurant at Empire Place earlier this month.

“The demand for this location is significant,” said Lloyd Cos.’ Raquel Blount, who is representing the owners of Empire Place. “In two weeks, we’ve secured two national retailers that have been looking at this market for a long time. Their decisions to locate here speak volumes about the traffic, demographics and overall performance of this location.”

Empire Place includes three standalone buildings – LongHorn Steakhouse and Chipotle will be occupying two of the three – with four multi-tenant retail centers. Demolition of the former auto dealer building on the property is scheduled for early March with retailers opening later this year.

“We have so much interest from additional stores and restaurants in the remaining space,” Blount said. “It’s exciting to see how fast the momentum is building.”
