Vacant north Fargo restaurant razed to make room for apartments
Earlier this year, developer Mark West provided the city with information about his plans for the site, which include underground parking.
West plans a three-story apartment complex that will have six one-bedroom apartments, 12 two-bedroom apartments and six three-bedroom units.
The city granted West’s request for a $179,000 tax break via tax-increment financing to cover the cost of demolition, sidewalks and infrastructure; as well as the difference of $54,700 between the land’s assessed value and the purchase price.
The McDonald’s at 3202 N. Broadway closed in the mid-1990s after about 19 years in business, and the building had sat vacant ever since.
