New retail development coming to Fargo

Posted: Updated:

While driving down 45th Street in South Fargo, there's a vacant lot, across from Scheels All Sports. But, it won't be vacant for long.

Today, a ground breaking ceremony took place there. Soon, you could be shopping at what they are calling an upscale retail center.

"out this way you can see all this vast green space."

And the plan for Prairie Stone Center is to grow small businesses.

"if you look in this area, almost all the retail is full, people are looking for more opportunities, a place they can grow and expand their business."

This spot was picked because Fargo has a demand for a place like this. And, 41 years ago West Acres Development was just beginning. Berg says it was this mall that paved the way to upcoming retail development.

"this is the last piece of undeveloped retail land in the 45th street, 13th ave, I-94...."

Putting a crunch on retail space city wide once the center is done.

"it's going to be pretty tight."

As for what stores are going to be there? They are asking for your help.

"Who is not in Fargo that should be in Fargo, and let us know who we should talk to, who we should encourage to come to Fargo."

It should be done by spring of next year.

"depends on the winter, depends on construction, but we are feeling very optimistic about that schedule"
