Construction on second apt building at Williston State College is underway

WILLISTON, N.D. - With the recent thaw, construction of Phase II is now underway. Phase II, the second apartment building being constructed on Williston State's campus, is a mirror image of the first apartment building built at WSC, completed August 2013.

Managed by Dakota Commercial & Development Co., Phase II is an 11 million dollar project consisting of four stories and 80,000 sq feet making up 74 residential units. Additionally, 13,000 sq feet of space will provide 41 underground parking stalls and 8,000 sq feet of will be available for commercial use. 

Three million of the total cost was garnered through the Housing Incentive Fund, provided by the North Dakota Housing Finance Agency. Half of the units in Phase II will be dedicated to housing essential service workers in the area, while the other half will be available at market rate.

There are current conversations between Dakota Commercial and Williston State in regards to the market rate units as WSC is continually looking for ways to meet student housing needs. While discussions are still underway, WSC President Dr. Raymond Nadolny says, "the College plans on using some of these units for student housing. It's very similar to what one sees at other major universities."

Dakota Commercial is not yet looking for tenants or taking information from those hoping to occupy the residential units. However, they are seeking business interested in filling the commercial space(s) which will be online this coming winter. More information about available residential units will be announced to the public as the project nears completion.

Expected completion of Phase II is December 2014.
