Alerus to Open New Fargo Location in 2025

FARGO, N.D. (June 12, 2024) – Alerus is pleased to announce a new location to be built in the Urban Plains Development near the corner of 32nd Avenue and Veterans Boulevard in Fargo, west of Scheels Arena. Construction of the 25,000 square foot, two-story building is set to begin in summer 2024. The new office is expected to open in 2025.

The office will provide full-service banking amenities, including a two-lane drive up and separate ATM lane, as well as modern and accessible meeting spaces for the company’s wealth services and retirement and benefits clients. Approximately 90 client-facing and support employees will be based at the location.

“The Fargo-Moorhead-West Fargo area is a very vibrant and growing community, and we see tremendous opportunity to continue attracting top talent and new clients to Alerus. As we searched for a new space to accommodate our long-term needs, we prioritized convenient access, nearby amenities, a welcoming environment, and room to continue growing,” said Missy Keney, chief engagement officer at Alerus. “This location and building checks all the boxes. We are excited to watch this building take shape over the next year, and we look forward to bringing our team and clients together in the new space in 2025.”

This project embodies the ethos of the next era of work, where spaces foster connectivity and growth for their clients and colleagues. We are excited to see Alerus’ vision and investment into the community come to life, and we look forward to announcing future neighbors in the neighborhood soon.”
