I happened to compare Fargo to Rochester in my most recent article for streets.mn. While Rochester has had the Mayo Clinic bringing a lot of buildings downtown, Fargo hasn't had the same level of investment there.

However, Fargo has a more contiguous stretch of small city blocks than Rochester does, perhaps because its flatter and only has one big river along the edge to contend with, while Rochester has a couple rivers/streams that meet close to downtown. They both have pretty nasty sprawl out around the edges, though.

The Minnesota DNR has put together a 568-page Final Environmental Impact Statement on the proposed $2 billion flood protection project for Fargo, which could have some floodwaters end up on our side of the border.

...meanwhile in Moorhead, MN.

I have lived in Moorhead for over 5 years now and have enjoyed it here. Our downtown has been pretty stagnant for a while, so it is exciting to hear of some development news here, instead of Fargo. The site used to be a gas station and is in a prominent location at two crossroads. Great to see some urban infill downtown and I hope the growth continues further. Sure, this development could use a few more housing units and maybe be a couple of floors taller, but we'll take it! :D

hopefully the start of many more for Moorhead.

Also, hope the Block 9 tower in Fargo gets started soon.
