Valley City, ND (WDAY TV) - The Strauss Mall sits on a major corner, and a developer decided it needed a facelift.

A developer at Valley Realty, and other partners, are renovating the old building.

Crews have been updating the exterior and pouring concrete.

When done, crews will move inside to modernize the building, making it handicap accessible.

The developer says the $300,000 project is a crucial part of keeping Valley City current.

George Gaukler, President, Valley Realty: "Part of it was really community development activity, why we are doing it. It wasn't to make a good real estate investment, hopefully it turns out that way but that's not why we're doing it."

The building still has room for about 12 more offices.
