Rehabilitation of the Patterson Place

Bismarck Downtown Design Review approved Schuett Companies, Inc for the rehabilitation of the Patterson Place apartments at 420 E Main Ave on November 14. “The rehabilitation would retain or expand the existing uses, including 117 affordable housing units, a ground-floor restaurant and retail space. Rehabilitate Patterson Place according to historic character, including replacement of storefronts and windows, repair and replacement of siding, addition of basement stairs, and installation of rooftop signs.” This project received approval as a Bismarck Renaissance Zone rehabilitation project in November of 2017 with a proposed estimated investment of over $7 Million into the historic building.

Our hope is to make breads how they should be made – by hand, naturally, and as fresh as possible.
