Mandan, North Dakota, is on the move with new businesses all over town.
First up is "Collins Place" coming to the corner of Main Street and Collins. Currently a parking lot, the four-story building will have 3,000 square feet of commercial space on the ground floor and 29 apartments above.
Developer Crown Equity LLC is investing nearly $3.9 million in the project. The City says if you've been parking in this vacant lot, you'll need to park elsewhere. Contact the Police Department for more information. Ground-breaking is expected soon.
