Block 9 Tower & Parking Structure

Fargo, ND

Block 9, is a $117 million dollar project consisting of an 18-story mixed use tower along with a total precast parking ramp in the heart of downtown Fargo, North Dakota. The 290,000-square-foot building will include a 125-key boutique hotel to be run by Aparium Hotel Group; a restaurant; residential condominiums; commercial office space for more than 300 team members of R.D. Offutt Co. along with other tenants; and retail space. There will also be a 379-space total precast parking ramp next to the tower to accommodate the influx of people downtown Fargo will now attract.

It will take approximately two and a half years to build these two structures. When completed in fall 2020, the multi-use tower will be the highest building in Fargo at 234 feet.

Wells Concrete manufactured nearly 220,000 combined sq. ft. of product between the two projects out of our Grand Forks, Albany, and Rosemount production facilities. Beginning February 2019, Wells erected more than 400 precast concrete members for the parking structure, which took approximately 62 working days to complete.  The architectural solid wall panels on the ramp showcase a beautiful sandblast finish with reveals.  Beams, columns and doubles tees were used to support both the structural and architectural wall panels and ease the construction process by utilizing one building system.Wells began erection on the podium portion of the Tower in May 2019, in total, we will erect and produce more than 1,690 precast concrete members. This work is estimated to take approximately 301 working days to complete.  The architectural solid precast components on the podium and the tower boast a beautiful sandblast finish with reveals.

The Block 9 Partnership is a joint effort of R.D. Offutt Company and Kilbourne Group.
