Williston approves more than 2,000 housing units

WILLISTON, N.D. (AP) - Williston's City Commission has approved plans for a 535-acre development that will bring 2,024 residential units to the housing-strapped city.

The Colorado-based LAI Design's North Star Center residential and commercial project was approved Tuesday.

The development is set to drastically increase the city's housing stock with 1,349 apartments, 94 single-family lots and 176 twin home lots.

The rapid growth of Williston as a result of the oil boom has left housing in short supply and driven up rents. New one-bedroom apartments in the city often rent for about $2,000 per month.

The city last year approved the construction of 1,501 apartment units, 124 single-family homes and 12 duplexes

Construction on the new development will begin this summer.
