More Housing Coming to Downtown Bismarck

By  | 

BISMARCK, N.D. - The Lander Group is one step closer to bringing roughly 90 new options for housing to downtown Bismarck.

The Group is planning two separate development projects on the north side of East Avenue A on both sides of North 2nd Street. The east side project, named "The Renaissance Lofts," will be four stories in height with approximately 65-67 units.

The west side, named "The Grove" will have a more traditional design containing roughly 23 units. The designs were approved for both projects. The Group still needs to undergo a site plan review and apply for building permits before they can begin construction.

"We understand that people living downtown shop downtown. There's just more life. There's more security. They're watching the streets. It's safer. So, we've been seeking this for a number of years. And so, it's very exciting that there's actually multiple projects that are underway," says Bismarck City Planner Daniel Nairn.

Before they can break ground, five structures in the area would need to be demolished.

Lander Group hopes to begin construction this Spring.
