Groundbreaking ceremonies were held today for the new Leighton Broadcasting studios south of Grand Forks. Construction of the state-of-the-art studios is pegged at upwards of one-and-a-half million dollars. Leighton Broadcasting recently secured a conditional use permit from the city of Grand Forks for site plans to build the 65-hundred square foot complex. Winkelman Building Corporation of St-Cloud (MN) will serve as the construction management firm with numerous local contractors participating in the construction. The building will include plans for future expansion. The project is expected to be completed in early 2015.
