Despite the Souris River flood, new construction is continuing in Minot.
A new housing subdivision with 175 lots for single-family homes is being developed in northwest Minot.
Site preparation for the Eagles Landing Subdivision began last week, said Dean Rasmuson, project engineer with Kadrmas, Lee & Jackson Inc. in Minot. The subdivision is being developed by KLC of Willmar, Minn.
Site preparation began last week on slightly more than 50 acres of land in northwest Minot for the new Eagles Landing Subdivision, shown in this photo taken Wednesday. The site where 175 single-family homes will be built, is in the southeast corner of the U.S. Highway 83 Bypass and 19th Avenue Northwest.
Don Bessette Motors on North Hill is building an addition, shown in this photo taken Wednesday. The addition will house a new showroom.
Construction of the new Olive Garden Italian restaurant is well under way, shown in this photo taken Thursday. Olive Garden is located on the north side of Dakota Square mall property.
The new subdivision covers slightly more than 50 acres and is located in the southeast corner of the U.S. Highway 83 Bypass and 19th Avenue Northwest.
Rasmuson said the developer has entered into an arrangement with five separate area builders and construction of the houses should be starting later this month.
He said most of the houses will range in price from $180,000 to $220,000. There will also be 10 to 15 lots with $400,000 homes.
The houses in this subdivision will be built "from the ground up."
Rasmuson said they expect people to move into houses there this year.
The various other construction projects going on in the city include an addition to Don Bessette Motors Inc., which will be a new showroom for each franchise; the Olive Garden Italian restaurant on the north side of Dakota Square mall property and several other restaurants in the city; and hotels including the Hampton Inn on North Hill and La Quinta Inn & Suites along 16th Street Southwest. The Souris Valley Suites, an 89-suite hotel project of Real Builders and Dora Hospitality, opened Monday on South Hill.
