Fargo is known as a gateway to the West. And while many have passed through our city, others have built their lives here.
Since its founding in 1871, fire, flood, and federal funding have driven reconstruction, sometimes with unintended and sub-optimal results. Today, as our city continues to thrive with a strong economy, albeit with thousands of unfilled jobs, the need for thoughtful design, efficient use of infrastructure, and a healthy, walkable city has never been higher.
At Kilbourne Group, we are redevelopers, realtors, designers and investors passionate about and dedicated to a community that thrives in the Great Plains. But more so, we are citizens of Fargo, working to make our home one of the world’s most vibrant communities.
Both history and economics hold that a city’s downtown is the source of its vitality and strength. That’s why we aim to breathe new energy into, and expand, our downtown residential, commercial, and retail spaces, and the spaces in between. By creating downtown infill projects that allow residents and visitors to walk, bike, live, work, play, shop, learn, explore and create, we contribute to the health and well-being of the entire metro region.
Fargo is no longer a gateway. It is the destination.
Kilbourne Group is a catalyst of inspiration and action for vibrant downtown communities.
