During the next 5 to 10 years, we will continue to serve the constituency of the Grand Cities Mall in cooperation with the Land of HOPE LLC (the managing group serving HOPE Church in relationship to the Grand Cities Mall).

Beyond these first years, our dream is to develop our 27 acres into a park-like oasis that serves and connects our community, inviting them to be a part of what God is doing.

Because our property is located in the center of the Grand Forks community, Midtown, we have a strategic opportunity to serve and bless our region. Our vision for this property is developing, as God guides us, but at the core we hope to create a space that serves and connects people.

  • Our first steps will be to develop a master-plan, guiding principles and vision for the entire acreage.
  • Currently the Grand Cities Mall is completely self-sufficient. Hope has not spent any of our funds to sustain the center.
  • We have chosen to add the master planning of the property into the Reimagine campaign because we believe that the vision for this space will be significant for the kingdom!
  • Much of what we are planning and dreaming is still in the development or dream stage. Here are a few of the components that will be part of our master planning discussions:
  • A possible partnership with the Grand Cities Library at the Midtown Center (Grand Cities Mall property)
  • Creation of park and playground space (including walking space, water feature, inspiring landscape
  • Senior adult housing
  • Integrated retail and office spaces
  • A HOPE Church campus integral to the grander vision of the Midtown property.

 

The scope of the Midtown vision is much larger than will be addressed with this particular campaign. The Reimagine HOPE campaign is targeted toward the early development of this dream. During the next years, we hope to see this vision begin to take shape through strategic partnerships with others.

Reimagine with us a Midtown Center that is viewed as an oasis in the city. HOPE has an amazing opportunity to serve our region and prepare a space for people to encounter our living God.
