Fargo - Steel is rising out of the ground in south Fargo for a building that will soon be full of air.

The beams being erected east of 40th Street and south of Ninth Avenue South in Fargo form the future home of Sky Zone, an indoor trampoline park.

Sky Zone is an international franchise with more than 65 locations in the U.S., Canada, Mexico and Australia. The first park opened in 2004 in Las Vegas.

According to a Forum report from mid-July, the Fargo park, owned by the local group Smart Family Entertainment LLC, is expected to open in late 2014.

The site, 940 40th St. S., is tucked between Fargo Inn and Suites and Fairfield Inn and Suites. It’s also near McDonald’s and Marcus Century 10 Cinema.

A building permit issued for the Sky Zone project July 30 was valued at more than $1.5 million.
