About the Area
Emerado & Grand Forks Air Force Base
The Hottest Up & Coming Area in Grand Forks!
The Grand Forks Air Force Base and its surrounding Emerado are located 20 miles west of Grand Forks, and they’re about to become the area’s hottest new locale for industry and jobs due to the construction and development of Grand Sky, the first-ever UAS (Unmanned Aircraft Systems) Business and Aviation Park in the United States.
The Development of Grand Sky
Unmanned Aircraft Systems, studies, and technology are an up-and-coming industry in the US. With the acclaimed aviation program of the University of North Dakota in Grand Forks, as well as the Grand Forks Air Base and hundreds of miles of surrounding undeveloped land, the area of Emerado is a perfect locale for the development of Grand Sky, which will be devoted to the study and development of unmanned aircraft technology.
This business park, though still in primary states of development, is expected to bring a huge amount of industry, high-tech jobs, and new business to Emerado and its surrounding areas, making it a blossoming hotspot for up-and-coming businesses, new jobseekers, and those looking to advance a technological career.
Get Involved with Grand Sky
Grand Sky has partnered with both the North Dakota Department of Commerce (NDDOC) and the Grand Forks Economic Development Corporaction (EDC) to offer assistance, support, and resources to new and developing businesses looking to expand into Grand Sky. This includes aviation research and development companies, as well as corporate companies and small up-and-coming businesses.
For those in the aviation research business, Grand Sky is perfectly located to have access to the resources, including top students, of both the University of North Dakota and the Northland Community and Technical College.
Grand Forks Air Force Base
Located just west of the Grand Forks Air Force Base, those working or living in the surrounding area, including military stationed at the base, have access to resources of the base. With a population of just over 2000, the Base offers conveniences such as on-site child care and child development programs, as well as an elementary/middle school and a medical center offering 24-hour ambulance service.
Grand Forks Public School District
The Grand Forks Air Base School and Grand Forks Public Schools work together to serve 76000 students over twelve elementary schools, fours middles schools, two high schools, and one elementary-middle school on the Base. There are also Youth Programs offered through the base, including sports, leisure, education, and social programs.
Emerado Real Estate
The average home price for a single-family home in Emerado is $150,000, though with the development of SkyGrand, pricing is likely to change as new construction begins to spring up in the area, offering many new options for style and affordability.
