Marketing firm receives interest for Regional Treatment Center campusPublished 11:13am Tuesday, October 2, 2012
One month after the Fergus Falls City Council engaged marketing firm Colliers International to promote the redevelopment of the Regional Treatment Center, the firm gave the city a brief report with some positive news.
Most notably, three parties previously interested in the property, as well as a potential developer from West Virginia, have all expressed interest in the property. The names of the parties have not been released, but City Administrator Mark Sievert, who presented the report to the council, said that the party from West Virginia is involved with another Kirkbride facility and has utilized it for tourism and entertainment purposes.
As initial interest is being felt out, Colliers has also been engaging in the groundwork for this month, when the firm plans to greatly increase the building’s marketing visibility. A website has been set up (www.kirkbridemn.com), and a mass email, press release, media contacts and developer network listing are all in the works.
According to a memo from Colliers representative Dan Peterson supplied to The Journal, Colliers will be searching for developers on a nationwide and international basis, utilizing social networking and traditional means of advertising and attempting to shunt all interest in the property toward the central hub of the new website.Tags: Regional Treatment Center
