Roberts Garage will provide storage for 241 bicycles.
Cement flooring began pouring for the parking structure on October 11.
These red concrete forms will are being prepared for the cross beams which will support the upper levels of the parking garage.
What was once an underutilized surface level parking lot in the heart of downtown Fargo will soon offer 455 parking spots, as well as bicycle parking, residential apartments, and an active retail spaces on the ground floor.
Roberts Garage will fill the snaggletooth streetscape along 2nd Avenue and Roberts Street in downtown Fargo.
Structural columns are supported by concrete, rebar, and over 102 helical steel pilings below the ground.
Rebar awaits its burial in concrete for the southern exterior wall which will divide the parking structure from the mixed use wrap.
Preparation underway to fill this wall with concrete.
Storefronts will line the west side of Roberts Alley with the addition of the mixed use wrap during phase II of this project.
Concrete forms sit on the construction site, awaiting placement for the parking structure’s cross beams.
The concrete for the structural crossbeams will be poured into forms before elevation of the upper ramp floors can begin.
Roberts Garage will provide parking for people who live, work, and visit downtown Fargo.
A crane operator moves a load of post tension cables at Roberts Garage.
Post tension cables are lifted from a semi truck to the construction site.
The cables will be stretched taut through the red forms, adding support to the concrete cross beams.
