This is guaranteed since Mahoney, Peipkorn, and Grindberg never vote against any new developments.
    This city is afraid of heights aren't they?

    Unless its more damn apartment buildings! Every friend/relative that visits Fargo for the first time calls Fargo "The apartments city" and my British family calls Fargo "the flats" (they're killing 2 birds with one stone)... and in 20 years, they'll be calling it The Projects.

    With that said, I do like this particular project...but no more in south Fargo please!

    Unless we close down all the colleges and stop growing, there will always be high demand for apartments. That Newman Block and Roosevelt neighborhood a slum in general and they are all single family shit holes.

    Almost 30,000 students in the metro and 20% of Fargo is 18-24. I think we may finally be seeing the apartments slow down
