U32 Neighbors Like What They See
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.
