FARGO, N.D. — Newmark Knight Frank (NKF) has arranged a $77.2 million construction loan for Block 9, a $125 million mixed-use project in downtown Fargo. The project involves the transformation of a 48,000-square-foot parking lot into an 18-story mixed-use tower. Ben Greazel of NKF arranged the loan on behalf of the borrower, a joint venture between Kilbourne Group and R.D. Offutt Co. A syndicate of banks led by First National Bank of Omaha provided the financing. Construction began in September. R.D. Offutt Co. will occupy a portion of the tower for its headquarters. Other components of the project include ground-floor retail space, a boutique hotel to be managed by Aparium Hotel Group, a restaurant and residential condominiums. Completion is slated for 2020.
