Upon completion, the project will consist of 144 apartments in 36 low density four-unit buildings and a cluster of 25 single-family (patio) homes.

Dakota Ridge Apartments, Williston, ND
Bakken Development Fund I
300 unit Multi-family Apartment Development over 35 acres
Opportunity: Extreme shortage of housing for oil workers in a rural landscape with limited building infrastructure to accommodate huge demands. Due to severe undersupply, available housing is leasing at a price premium.
This project is located adjacent to Williston, North Dakota at the epicenter of the Bakken oil boom. Due to the recently discovered hydraulic fracturing technologies, the Bakken has rapidly risen to become recognized as the #1 fastest growing micropolitan (population of not more than 50,000) in the nation.
GCG pro-actively acquired land in 2012 in anticipation of a massive demand. Our firm is one of the initial developers seizing the opportunity and spearheading the entitlement processes of multi-family residential building in the Bakken. This project is leasing immediately as units become available at premium rents.
