I'm getting the hats ready for Cratter's run for mayor......."MGFGA"

Will he get Central into the WAC or MWC?

Gotta give credit to the city of GF, downtown development association, etc. for making all these investments into downtown - Condos, Hugos Grocery with new Alerus bank, Skyways, new DeMers street w/ n

Signs point to an increase in aviation business, as even the article says its related to aviation/UND.

Edgewood, the senior housing local corporation, is known for making good financial decisions and recently bought the old Alerus building for HQ on the top floor.  Trust them for making business decisions more than the city.

where is the "old alerus buidling"

Is there really a shortage of event space in Grand Forks? Also when is the saturation point for $400k condos in downtown? 

I'm not anti-downtown development, but seems there is a lot happening at once before evaluating if there's really a demand. 

This attitude unfortunately reflects the average GF resident. It’s an attitude that holds the city back.

Build it and they will come. 

So many cities throughout the world have seen that making downtown attractive again will draw people. Good for GF to get on board.

It does but an interesting conundrum. Does the city provide a tax break for a facility that will compete with Alerus Center for business?

If any of the taxing groups, such as city, school board, park board, etc, object, they can file to get out of it.  Nearly every hotel has conference room space.

When Sky's first moved into the new Edqewood Complex, think this had already been planned.  Sky's and a Boutique hotel with conference rooms need to go together so all would work better.

The hotel will be named, Olive Ann, named after Olive Ann Beech, who was a cofounder of Beechcraft.

Where is the new construction going?  Thought is was across the street from the old First National, but a development called the Argyle is planned for that spot.

Parking lot that sits to the north of the building that Sky’s is in (Edgewood building).  New building will connect to it.

Gotta give credit to the city of GF, downtown development association, etc. for making all these investments into downtown - Condos, Hugos Grocery with new Alerus bank, Skyways, new DeMers street w/ new side walks,  hotel, update town square. Can't wait to see what it looks like when all is done. 

Not knocking the old townhouse inn, but that place is very out dated

By my count: 

- Convention center (82 room hotel, ballrooms, condos, bar)

- Arbor Park building (5 stories with condos & retail)

- Hugos/Alerus (plus 60? apartments)

- Lyons Garage (100+ apartments + retail)

- Corner of Demers and 4th (5 story building with retail and commercial)

- Renovation of Seaworth law firm building into restaurant (next to the Empire)

- Demers reconstruction 

- Town Square reconstruction 

- Eventually the old water plant redevelopment 


Any others?

Downtown has been a construction traffic problem all summer, and I'll be worth it.

Intersection of Old Highway 81 and Demers Ave ahead at the lights.

Nice sidewalk, color coded mid street aprons, color coded sidewalks, pavers in the berm. All new ground coverings from building face to building face - sidewalk, street, & berm.
