There is a nice article in today's Grand Forks Herald about all of the developments taking place in downtown Grand Forks. They also included a list of the individual projects. Of note, the article states that the new owner of the St. John's Block wants an art gallery and wine bar on the main floor and a grocery store in the basement in addition to the "funky, cutting-edge" New York-style lofts that will fill the upper floors. Also, the new renters of the Opera House Lofts started moving in this past weekend while construction on the new Elite Brownstones at the current site of the Flood Memorial Park will start later this month. Some tentative opening dates provided by new downtown businesses: Joe Black's bar and grill - mid-April, Dakota Harvest Bakers - May, The Toasted Frog appetizer bar and restaurant - "some time this spring".
