Additionally, an infill project on the adjacent parking lot east of the former school features a brand new apartment building with 63 residential units and an underground parking garage. Woodrow Apartments feature a shared lobby and courtyard between the former school building and the newly constructed apartments to the east.
The project will also include the construction of a new 2,500 square foot build-to-suit retail building on the southwest corner of the block.
Built in 1917, the Woodrow Wilson School in Fargo, North Dakota is a historic building that is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. It was added to the Registry on October 24, 2012. It was deemed notable for its Collegiate Gothic design by local architects Haxby and Braseth. The school “is also a good example of how design changed to meet Progressive-era education ideas.”
As Fargo’s second oldest surviving school building, it was the city’s only high school until 1921. It served the community as a school for 95 years. Originally, the school served elementary grades during the day and provided adult education in the evenings. Later, it was used as an alternative high school, complementing three other high schools in the Fargo Public Schools district until it moved to the Agassiz Building at 1305 Ninth Avenue South in March 2012.
