FYI on NDR: Blu on Broadway Opening Celebrated
November 4, 2021
Blu on Broadway, a master-planned mixed-use development, celebrated its grand opening in October. This development is a 5-story building that includes main level commercial space, and long-term affordable housing units on the upper floors. This project is made possible by the partnership between the US Department of Housing and Urban Development, the City of Minot, Minot’s National Disaster Resilience Program and EPIC Companies.
“We are open and so excited to provide more opportunities for affordable housing in the City of Minot. By being along Broadway, commercial tenants like X-Golf Minot and Ambition Nutrition were quick to sign a lease,” said McKenzy Braaten, VP Marketing and Public Relations at EPIC Companies.
Construction began in spring of 2020 and concluded fall of 2021. Epic Companies has filled all 42 units on the upper floor, along with over 6,000 square feet of commercial space leased on the ground floor. The development brings amenities like underground parking, a community video board, and more to this prime location in Minot, ND.
“We’re pleased that the City of Minot is able to play a role in this public/private partnership by providing funds through our National Disaster Resilience Program,” said Minot Mayor Shaun Sipma. “This project will help address Minot’s shortage of low-to-moderate income housing and improve the quality of life in our community, which is precisely what this federal funding was intended to do.”
