Belfield development could offer grocery store, hotel, more

BELFIELD -- Developers will start underground work on a huge $30 million residential and commercial project in Belfield this spring.

While developers can't disclose the specific businesses yet, American Landmark Group's Mitchel Beckstead said tenants could be a travel center, a grocery store, a hotel and office warehouse space.

The development, currently called Belfield Crossing, will also have housing, which could help the community with its need for more residential options.

The housing component includes seven buildings for a total of 112 apartment units, which are a mix of one- and two-bedrooms, according to the site plan.

Beckstead it's too soon to tell whether the residential space will have affordable housing options.

The site plan also shows multiple buildings are designated for restaurants and retail.

The first phase will include the travel plaza with a restaurant, one hotel and the grocery store, Beckstead said.

ALG bought the 46 acres of land, directly northwest of the Interstate 94 and Highway 85 intersection, nine months ago, Beckstead said.

The company plans to complete the water and sewer work sometime in 2014, ALG's Andy Kitchen told Belfield City Council members at their Sept. 9 meeting.
