  • Spring Parade of Homes: Crestwood Condos

    by Kristen Juven | Apr 20, 2018

    Spring Parade of Homes features homes for families in different life stages

    FARGO — This year's Spring Parade of Homes focuses on the homebuyers' stage of life — and how it affects their home's size and design.

    The Home Builders Association of Fargo-Moorhead's Spring Parade of Homes features 93 newly constructed homes by 50 local builders, including options for those age 55 and older, first-time buyers, families looking to expand and those wanting to downsize.

    Room to grow old: Crestwood Condos

    Builder: Roers Construction

    Value: $243,900

    Size: 1,450 square feet, two bedrooms and two baths (For those who need a little extra space, there is a three bedroom, three bath (2,200 square feet) option with an elevator, valued at $322,900.)

    Address: 2860 Calico Dr., Unit D, Fargo

    Stand out details:
       - 9' ceilings
       - Heated 2-stall garages
       - Large private patios and courtyards

    "What makes these homes special is that they are truly one-level living, says Matt Nygard, Roers development research analyst and executive of residential sales. "You pull into your garage and you walk right into your condominium."

    During the fall of 2016, Roers - which primarily builds multifamily and commercial housing - decided to build reasonably-priced Crestwood Condominiums for buyers 50-and-older.

    "We did some research and saw that there were a lot of people in the 50s and 60s looking for this," Nygard says. "We decided to build these homes at the mid-$200,000 to lower $300,000 price points."

    Nygard says by building a spacious one-level condominium at this price point, many people could downsize their current home without going into debt to purchase a new home that would include some aging-in-place features, like the wide, wheelchair or walker accessible doorways and spacious bathrooms.

    "All units have butler pantries which helps keep the kitchens less cluttered with coffee pots, mixers or toasters," he says.

    Nygard also points out the mobility and freedom each home allows its owners. Conveniently located between 45th Street and 42nd Street and just north of 32nd Avenue South, each unit includes snow removal and lawn care.

    "Owners have peace in mind going on extended vacations knowing that the condo property is secure and taken care of," Nygard says.

  • U32 Neighbors Like What They See

    by Kristen Juven | Aug 10, 2017

    Neighbors once opposed to large scale apartment complex in north Fargo like what they see

    FARGO (KFGO) - It's called U-32.

    The 5 story, $22 million apartment complex at 32nd Avenue and North University Drive in Fargo just opened. It didn't always look that way. Neighbors fought the initial proposal, built on a 25 acre site that was a horse pasture. They took their concerns to Roers, the developer, and to city hall.

    After months of meetings and discussion, changes were made to meet neighborhood opposition, and the project got the final city okay last summer. Pepper Eisenhardt helped lead the protest. He lives a block away. He was among several dozen neighbors invited to tour the complex this week. He calls the building "state-of-the-art" and "very impressive." 

    Roers executive Larry Nygard says 80% of the 115 apartments are rented. He says there's a nice mix of tenants, including students from NDSU, only a mile away, along with those with the North Dakota Air National Guard, and the Fargo V-A hospital, both nearby.

    Nygard says plans for up to three more similar sized apartment buildings on the property could start two years from now, depending on demand.

  • Jeremiah Program

    by Kristen Juven | Jun 16, 2017

    Fargo, ND — Jeremiah Program broke ground on its new Fargo-Moorhead campus in early June. The new campus, located at 3104 Fiechtner Drive South in Fargo, will provide safe and affordable housing for 20 determined, low-income families, as well as an on-site early childhood education center, classrooms where the mothers can build confidence and life skills, and spaces where they can meet with coaches to support them in achieving a career-track, college education.

    “We have worked hard together to get to this day,” said Diane Solinger, Jeremiah Program Fargo-Moorhead Executive Director. “Many of our community board of trustees and supporters have been with us since the very beginning, even through the peaks and valleys. They have given us unwavering commitment, and together we are building a campus to bring this excitement to life.”

    Why is this campus and Jeremiah important to Fargo-Moorhead? Currently, more than 2,300 single mothers are living in poverty in the Fargo-Moorhead area, a number that has increased 16 percent over the last six years. The majority of these mothers have children under the age of four with fewer than half of them enrolled in pre-school...

  • U of Mary

    by Kristen Juven | Sep 06, 2016

    Construction workers at the University of Mary put away the hard hats and put a halt to all the construction for one hour today to celebrate the grand opening of the school’s new residence hall at the center of campus.

    Students, faculty, staff and honored guests officially marked the opening of the all-female, 276-bed residence hall with a festive ribbon-cutting ceremony, the unveiling of its new name, Roers Hall (pronounced Roars), and tours of the facility. Roers Hall is just steps east of Welder library tucked between two other residence halls, Greg Butler Hall and Hillside Hall, forming a neatly nestled quad that fosters more interaction among students.

    “We are extremely grateful to the Roers family. Their faithfulness and devotion to Catholic higher education and their love for our students and the Benedictine Sisters of the Annunciation Monastery, founders and sponsors of the University of Mary, is an inspiration to us all,” said University of Mary President Monsignor James Shea. “Over the years Roers has expanded west from their home in Fargo, so they understand first-hand the growth we are experiencing in North Dakota, particularly in Bismarck and on our campus...”
