How Block 9 is Set to ReEnergize Fargo’s Historic Downtown

The Block 9 project began with a vision to transform downtown Fargo. After four years, McGough is proud to have partnered with Kilbourne Group and Skidmore, Owings & Merrill (SOM) and to bring that vision to life. 

Block 9 is a mid-rise, mixed-use tower in the heart of downtown Fargo. After 43 years as a surface parking lot, Block 9 has transformed the Fargo skyline. The project includes headquarters for hundreds of team members of R.D. Offutt Company, ground floor retail, a boutique hotel, restaurant, and residential condominiums.

Block 9 also includes a programmed public plaza, over a half acre in size, which is anticipated to become a gathering and celebration space for the region. Plans include seasonal amenities such as a skating rink, splash pad, vendor spaces, and a band shell for live performances.
