The Bridges at 57th Street Welcomes Three New Services to the Area!


A travel agency, a Pilates studio and a fresh seafood supplier are adding to the diverse mix of restaurants, retail shops and services available at The Bridges at 57th Street, located on the corner of 57th and Western in Sioux Falls.


Travel Leaders, a full-service leisure and corporate travel agency, relocated to The Bridges from a former location in Sioux Falls and is already open and serving customers at 5009 S Western Avenue next to the new Forget Me Not and Eddy Joy Baby Boutique locations.


“This summer, the lower level of the building just south of Bracco has changed substantially,” explains Mike Van Buskirk, Director of Operations at Van Buskirk Companies, the property management and development company for The Bridges at 57th Street. “It is rewarding to see stores like Forget Me Not and Eddy Joy moving to bigger, better spaces and exciting to bring in respected companies like Travel Leaders. They have been a part of Sioux Falls for twenty-three years, offering award-winning expertise, and we are happy to have them here.”


Travel Leaders specializes in destination weddings, honeymoons, all-inclusive travel, luxury travel, family travel, Disney vacations, cruises, European travel and everything in between.


The second new addition to The Bridges at 57th Street will open in early fall.


Club Pilates is a nationwide boutique fitness studio that specializes in strength training classes for anyone at any age.  Group and private classes are offered in various formats and levels to accommodate anyone seeking to learn Pilates, hone their fitness expertise or become a Pilates instructor. Club Pilates is a well-established brand, committed to providing affordable and accessible Pilates to the community. In addition to offering Pilates on the best reformers in the industry, the new studio will be equipped with EXO chairs, springboards, TRX, ladder barrel, barre, mats, balls and weights. The studio will also sell Club Pilates branded apparel.


“Club Pilates will be located on the top level of our 5009 S Western Avenue building, just two doors down from Scooter’s Coffee,” explains Van Buskirk. “This is an ideal space that will offer top-of-the-line Pilates instruction, backed by a national brand but with the added benefit of local ownership.”


The Sioux Falls studio owners, Michael and Tricia Safranski, invested in Club Pilates as it allows them to offer the community the ability to live a happier, healthier and more fulfilling life through the studio’s services. 


“Our goal is to help fulfill Joseph Pilates' dream of bringing his workout to every person who can benefit from a stronger body and more balanced life,” says Michael Safranski.


The third anticipated location will move into the former Cleaver’s Market location this fall. Dakota Seafood is a Rapid City-based company expanding to Sioux Falls to provide fresh seafood to retail and wholesale customers.


The company buys directly from the docks, supporting smaller fisheries around the world and specializing in sustainable, seasonal seafood. The product offering is different every day, so it will be important for people to check for the day’s offerings.


“The new tenants coming to The Bridges this fall are really going to enhance what we already have here—a great mix of locally owned businesses that provide quality products and services in a great atmosphere,” says Van Buskirk.  “We have a few spaces available yet and the steady stream of interest in those spaces is exciting.  We are happy to be able to offer leasing opportunities because in the past, we would get several calls but we did not have any available spaces.”
