Mercy Heights Apartments
Williston, North Dakota
Responding to a serve housing shortage as a result of the Bakken oil boom in western ND, Catholic Health Initiatives retained JLG Architects and Dakota Commercial and Development, Inc. to develop a 66-unit mixed-use project in downtown Williston, ND.
CHI’s intent is to provide affordable housing options to recruit and retain staff for their hospital, Mercy Medical, and for other key employers like the City of Williston and the Williston Public School District. One block off main street, there is first floor commercial designed for single or multiple tenancy, and the contoured site naturally accepts below-grade parking, with the balance provided in off-street lots.
The building design incorporates brick to tie to the downtown infrastructure and modern forms and materials that give the project presence and permanence.
