Since 2006, Kilbourne Group has been on a mission to revitalize downtown Fargo, North Dakota. As a
vertically integrated development company, Kilbourne has redeveloped historic buildings and turned
parking lots into mixed-use communities full of character, serving as settings for one-of-a-kind
experiences you can only have in Fargo. Creating a blend of retail, office, and residential properties has
infused energy into the downtown core and created spaces designed for all people to enjoy.

Downtown Fargo is an 18-hour city, defined by economists as a mid-size city with attractive amenities, higher than average population growth and lower costs of living and doing business than the biggest urban areas.

At its heart, downtown Fargo is a mixed-use, walkable environment that fosters life on the sidewalks for 18 hours a day

Now you can find active tree-lined streets, intersection bump-outs, and bike lanes all serving to slow traffic and create an enjoyable and safe experience for those on foot.

Rich with local arts, creative endeavors, craftspeople, and entrepreneurs, downtown provides a new experience around every corner. Downtown Fargo employees and residents are within walking distance of the city’s finest arts, entertainment, food, offices, and shops.

“18-hour cities faired relatively well during the pandemic recession, a testament to their enduring appeal. These medium-sized cities continue to attract in-migration due to lifestyle, workforce quality, and development opportunities.’’
