WEST FARGO - BC Contracting is building itself a new home.

The company has begun foundation work on a three-story building in the Gateway West Office Park, just west of the Hornbacher’s grocery store in the Gateway West Shopping Center.

“We’re excited to announce the groundbreaking of our NEW HOME, Gateway West Office Park!!” the company announced recently on Facebook.

City records list the address of the 37,712-square-foot building as 2060 Sheyenne St.

A $1.25 million building permit has been issued for the foundation, according to West Fargo records. Grading for the site close to Interstate 94 has been ongoing for a few weeks.

Lauren Orchard, the city’s director for economic development, said a PILOT tax break (a payment in lieu of taxes) is being sought for the building, but that the application hasn’t been processed yet because the price tag of the structure has varied. The PILOT request is expected to be heard in December by an advisory committee to the city commission.

“We are excited to see a headquarters in the Interstate 94 corridor. We are very happy about the type of development being proposed,” Orchard said Wednesday, Nov. 17.

”Come join us in being among the first businesses to greet travelers from the West!” the Facebook post said.

The planned unit development zoning designation, site plan and building review were approved by the City Commission Sept. 20.

Nearly 60 underground parking spaces will be part of the building’s overall parking plan, city records show.

A Phase II building is also being considered, city records indicate, though there is no indication of when that building would be built, or of its size. It would also need approval from the city’s planning and zoning commission and the city commission.

The land is in the process of being sold by Gateway West LLC to BC Contracting, a person familiar with the project said.
