This July marks ten years of Enclave, a development, construction, and property management firm specializing in multi-family housing, commercial, and industrial space. They’ve been ten busy years: downtown Fargo’s 300 Lime, MedPark Medical Center, E.W. Wylie and Uptown & Main in Fargo are just a few of Enclave’s more than 70 projects.
And it all started when founders Ben Meland and Austin Morris, just 27 and 24 at the time, decided to leave their full-time jobs and shake up the development world.
“We saw an opportunity to do things a little differently,” Morris said. “We take great pride in the projects that we create, each one distinct with different features and a different personality.”
After a decade of putting immense care and intention into every one of their projects, they decided it was time to do the same for themselves. Enclave’s new headquarters, just off Interstate 94 and Veterans Boulevard in West Fargo, opened its doors in March 2021.
At 86,200 square feet, their new headquarters is a far cry from the 550-square foot office where Morris and Meland began their journey together, with plenty of room for their team to continue growing.
“We were two or three to an office at the Case Plaza building,” Morris said. “It had been a dream of ours to do what we do every day for ourselves as well. You spend a lot of time in your office, so we wanted to have an impact on the teams that we serve every day, to create an energizing, inspiring place for them to do their work.”
