The Aurora Apartments at Griggs Square

Grand Forks, North Dakota

With dynamic ideas to revitalize a vacated area, MetroPlains and Dakota Commercial partnered with JLG to recreate an iconic gateway into downtown, The Aurora on Griggs Square. These apartments are designed to be affordable one-to-three-bedroom homes featuring a modern design, open floorplan, in-unit laundry, and private master baths. Residents here have access to amenities that help create their own community, such as an on-site fitness center on the first floor, a communal study area on the second, and a rooftop deck capturing downtown’s river views. Residents also have access to nearby jogging and biking paths, as well as Griggs Square, a welcoming plaza space for both tenants and the downtown public. The Aurora concept is helping reinforce the urban grid with affordable living solutions, modern community-style amenities, and sustainable design.
