Standoff in Grand Forks mobile home park ends without incident

Grove Apartments apologizes for delays

Campus Crest, the developer of The Grove, a new Grand Forks apartment complex aimed at students, said in a statement Thursday that the company is working to compensate residents whose move-in dates have been pushed back because of “unanticipated construction delays.”

“We have notified all affected residents and have been working directly with them to ease their transition into a nearby hotel that we have secured until their apartments are finished and we receive sign-off from the City,” the Campus Crest statement said.

The Herald reported Tuesday that the residents of three buildings wouldn’t be able to move in on Aug. 23, the original move-in date, but The Grove declined to comment and Campus Crest did not return a voicemail seeking comment.

Campus Crest released a statement to the Herald Thursday afternoon regarding compensation for those residents whose move-in is being delayed, but the statement did not specify which units would have delayed move-ins.

“We will also be providing meals, storage units and a shuttle service to and from campus. We are working diligently to complete the last phases of construction and mitigate disruption as much as we can to ensure the well-being of residents — our top priority. We sincerely apologize for the delays and are fully committed to providing our residents with the highest quality living experience.”
