SIOUX CITY | The first residents have moved into a new Sioux City apartment complex that's on schedule for completion next fall, according to company officials.
Representatives of the Lincoln, Nebraska-based Perry Reid Properties unveiled the first of eight buildings Wednesday at Summit at Sunnybrook, a planned 225-unit apartment development located along the northeast corner of Sunnybrook Drive and Christy Road.
City officials had the opportunity to tour one of the new apartments as part of a ribbon-cutting ceremony.
"They're very well-done," Mayor Bob Scott said. "It's really exciting to think that we're building apartments in Sioux City again, because we've gone so long without building any, especially market rate."
The complex will include eight buildings total: three with 25 units and five with 30 units. Planned amenities include individual parking garages, a clubhouse and a pool.
Residents moved into the first completed building in mid-September, according to a Perry Reid Apartments representative. Twenty-two of the 25 units in the first building are currently leased.

The second building is slated to be finished Nov. 1, with the third building expected to be complete in the first week of January. About 60 percent of the second building and 30 percent of the third have been leased.
All buildings are expected to be complete by this time next year.
Since the units' announcement in 2015, the addition of the 225 units has been applauded by city officials as a much-needed boost in rental housing.
Sioux City this year is on a near-record pace for housing, according to the number of building permits issued for housing units by the city.
