at the beacon

A Beacon in the heart of Grand Forks, ND.

The Beacon stands for Inspiration and Opportunity while being a light signifying hope for those who see it.

The Beacon is a district located near downtown Grand Forks that is the future home to three buildings, a 40,000 SF outdoor plaza, additional public parking, and event space.

The city-owned plaza and event space can host events such as markets, trade shows, theater, movie nights, kids events, hockey, broomball, basketball, speaking engagements, art, and more.  

The three seven-story mixed-use buildings will consist of apartments, condos, and 12,000+ SF commercial space. This unique area will be a complement to current city assets and the community as a whole. The Beacon will be developed by EPIC Companies in a similar fashion to the popular development “The Lights”, located in West Fargo, ND.

1923 By EPIC

1923 by EPIC will be the name of the first building constructed at The Beacon by EPIC in Grand Forks. Expected for completion in 2023.

1923 by EPIC honors the men that wore those numbers for the University of North Dakota.  Reggie Morellis wore number 19 and Ralph Engelstad wore number 23.  These two UND legends inspired many citizens throughout the Grand Forks community and beyond.
They continuously helped and provided opportunities to people up until they passed. May you see these white and green lights in the sky and think of the inspiration and opportunity.


The Beacon By EPIC is developed as a public private partnership with:
