Really positive for the Air Force Base, Grand Forks and UND. Hoeven says there will be growth, but doesn’t elaborate. Still, an investment this large in GFAFB is huge.

Any idea when the new Hugo’s will open downtown?  Why are they dragging their feet; was supposed to be open in the spring.  The apartments on the upper floors have been occupied since June 1st.  Hugo’s doesn’t even make any mention of this new store on their Facebook page or their website…strange lack of marketing for a huge investment.

Still not open and still no mention of it opening on any of Hugo’s media sites…wtf is going on?

i know someone said our soil is sandy which is why it's more expensive to go to high with these new downtown buildings....but isn't the beacon far enough from the river to where instead of 3 seven story buildings couldn't they just do 2 ten or so story buildings?

Within a month if I had to put my money on something.
More than a couple reasons for the delays but it is going to be a big thing for downtown once its up and running.

I am aware of the actual issues with the project. My point was that there were ridiculous reasons for delays.
