32nd Avenue and South Washington building razed, but no word on new use

A building that stood at the northeast corner of 32nd Avenue South and South Washington Street in Grand Forks was demolished recently, but its owner is not ready yet to say what he plans to do with the lot.

A building that stood at the northeast corner of 32nd Avenue South and South Washington Street in Grand Forks was demolished recently, but its owner is not ready yet to say what he plans to do with the lot.

"There is a plan," wrote owner Arch Simonson in an email, "but I'm not ready to go public with what exactly that plan is at this time."

Simonson operates the chain of Simonson Station Stores, headquartered in Grand Forks.

The property is bordered by two other lots owned by Simonson's company and occupied by a business center and a station store.

The building was 45 years old, according to county property records, and recently housed Speedysign, a tax preparation office and other businesses.
