Renovations, Signages and Façade Alterations…

The Renaissance Zone agenda for the April 12, 2018 meeting is filled with multiple requests for approvals for renovations, signage and façade alterations in downtown Bismarck. A preview of the requests for this April’s agenda:

  • Mike and Alice Joyce (building owners) are requesting Downtown Design Review approval  to renovate a first-floor storefront façade that is vacant. The existing building is home to Noodlezip occupying the east side of the ground floor. Currently, the west side is vacant.
  • The Barber’s Wife is requesting Downtown Design Review approval for one projecting non-illuminated sign to be installed on the façade of 401 East Broadway Avenue. The Barber’s Wife recently moved into the east side of the 3rd floor of the Broadway Tower.
  • Susan Morris (building owner) is requesting Downtown Design Review approval of one non-illuminated wall sign. The sign would be for the new Desirae’s Makeup and Beauty Lounge (formerly occupied by Magnolia’s). Located at 105 N 5th St.
  • Another request from Susan Morris for Downtown Design Review is approval of façade alterations and wall mounted signs for the southwest corner portion of the building located at 101 North 5th Street (formerly occupied by One World). The building has been undergoing interior renovations for Anima Cucina, Italian eatery and wine bar, as a Renaissance Zone Lease Project. Proposed changes to the façade of the building include new storefront windows, new doors, adjustment of infilled transom windows, and paint.

A friendly reminder to property owners in Downtown Bismarck to be kind to infrastructure when moving snow … hopefully we won’t need to worry about snow until next winter!
