While the Bakken region continues to dominate the economic news in this region, Minneapolis has a billion-dollar stadium project underway for the NFL’s Minnesota Vikings and reportedly has an estimated $1 billion in multi-family projects underway or on the drawing boards in the downtown area, according to Minnesota Public Radio. Other projects of note include the $700 million data center Microsoft is building in West Des Moines, Iowa, and Cerner’s planned $4.4 billion campus in Kansas City, Mo. But most of the really big projects are in North Dakota’s Bakken Region, including a $4 billion petrochemical facility; a $3 billion fertilizer plant that’s getting ready to break ground; and Dakota Gold Transfer’s plans to construct a crude transfer facility in the Bakken region that would eventually store 600,000 barrels of oil.
