Battle Lake’s Hatchery Row to break ground Aug. 15

“They (Goodneighbors Properties) feel the final design fits well with the character of both the former Hatchery buildings and the downtown Battle Lake area,” said Battle Lake Economic Development Director Val Martin. “The final floor plan will feature 15 to 20 apartments and 12,000 to 15,000 square feet of commercial space.”

PERHAM – After nearly six years of work, the Hatchery Row Development project in Battle Lake is now becoming a reality.

Hatchery Row is located on Henning Street, just west of Highway 78 and adjacent to Battle Lake’s popular downtown area. The groundbreaking ceremony is 9 a.m. on Monday, Aug. 15 at the site on Henning Street, according to an Otter Tail County news release. Construction will start at the end of August.

Demolition and cleanup have been completed and the site is available for development. Goodneighbors Properties from Alexandria is the developer and has created a comprehensive design for the site.

“They (Goodneighbors Properties) feel the final design fits well with the character of both the former Hatchery buildings and the downtown Battle Lake area,” said Battle Lake Economic Development Director Val Martin. “The final floor plan will feature 15 to 20 apartments and 12,000 to 15,000 square feet of commercial space.”

With the help of several grants from the Minnesota Department of Employment and Economic Development, Otter Tail County Community Development Agency, and USDA Rural Development, the project is moving forward.

Additional expenses, not covered through the grants, will be recovered through tax increment financing. For more information, contact Val Martin at Battle Lake City Hall at blcity@arvig.net or 218-864-0424.
