Originally designed in 1970 and first occupied in 1973 as a Housing and Urban Development (HUD) property, the 10-story New Horizons Manor building at 2525 North Broadway in Fargo was one of the first ADA accessible housing projects in North Dakota. It is also one of Fargo Housing and Redevelopment Authority’s fully-accessible communities.
With the New Horizons facility being nearly 50 years old, it was in need of some major updates to meet current accessibility and energy efficiency requirements. EAPC provided architectural, mechanical, and electrical design on the project, with Gast Construction serving as the General Contractor.
With the help of North Dakota tax credits and work being done in multiple stages, the kitchens and bathrooms were demolished and reconstructed in all of the building’s 98 units (74 one-bedroom units and 24-two-bedroom units). The building residents continued to live in the facility while utilities, lighting, plumbing fixtures, insulation, finishes, backup generator, elevators, and heating systems were upgraded throughout. In addition, the interior common spaces and on-site offices were also remodeled and freshened up.
New Horizons Manor has continued to be designated subsidized housing by Fargo Housing and Redevelopment Authority, featuring:
- Spacious community room
- Accessible transportation services
- On-site laundry facilities
- Roll-in showers
- Hot meals daily at noon
- Garage parking available
- Close to Northport Shopping Center, clinic, banking, church, and various retail businesses
