Workers begin the Moorhead Center Mall’s demo process



Fargo, North Dakota – The Downtown Moorhead project is now formally off to a start.

On the northwest side of the Moorhead Center Mall, workers demolished the former Herberger’s building today to start the demolition process.

For weeks, interior demolition has been ongoing to make sure that all hazardous garbage and recyclables have been properly removed from the building. Up till March, exterior demolition will proceed.

Herberger’s was an anchor store in the Moorhead Center Mall when it debuted in 1983 and closed in 2018 due to bankruptcy filings and shop closures by parent company Bon-Ton.

The City of Moorhead owns the parking ramp, which was installed in 1992 and is still in place today.

The structure on Center Avenue northwest of 5th Street will be the target of the next demolition phase, which is scheduled to start in the spring of 2024. To create room for the reconstruction project and the Moorhead Community Center & Library’s eventual home, the destruction is a calculated step.
