FARGO - An new entertainment district called Timber Creek LIVE is being developed on the northeast corner of Interstate 29 and 52nd Avenue South.
Property Resources Group and PACES Lodging Corp. announced Friday, June 5, that they are partnering with a group of local investors in the venture.
"I think the whole entertainment district is a huge need for town. We don't really have a lot," said Kevin Christianson, president of Property Resources Group and PACES Lodging.
Suite Shots, the first of the projects for Timber Creek LIVE, will break ground the week of June 8, a news release said.

The golf entertainment facility will feature a 250-yard driving range with 60 hitting bays, including eight private VIP bays; golf simulators; a golf training academy; multiple restaurant and bar areas; and banquet spaces. The 51,000-square-foot facility sits on about 10.5 acres of land.
"It caters to the whole public, this facility, whether you're young or old. It's exciting to bring that to the community," Christianson said. "It's something Fargo doesn't have."
Choice Bank is financing the project.
Christianson said another project "on the entertainment side" is in the works.
He said he hopes the district will attract more hotels and restaurants "to a growing part of town" that has "easy access to the surrounding communities."
About 29 acres remain for sale or to build-to-suit in the area, the news release said.
Christianson said the COVID-19 pandemic slowed the planning a bit, but he looks forward to fleshing out the entertainment district.
"It will help recruit more people to the area," Christianson said. "We're just excited to bring new opportunities to our community."
