Great Places to Work: Enclave

Written by: Brady Drake

Creating Spaces Where People Thrive

Founded in 2011, Enclave quickly made a name for itself on the Fargo-Moorhead/West Fargo real estate scene through the development, construction, and management of some of the most modern multifamily, commercial, and multi-use properties in the region.

Space for Success

In just 11 short but productive years, Enclave has grown from a two-person start-up to 200+ team members, completing over 100 projects and generating upwards of $1 billion in value for their clients and partners. The team’s success has and continues to be rooted in a simple desire: to create spaces where people thrive.

At its core, Enclave is a unified real estate investment firm that combines the strength and versatility of having development, construction, and management teams working as one. This unified structure delivers superior products and service, backed by industry-leading returns to partners while ensuring the Enclave experience and commitment to quality remains consistent throughout all phases of a project.

We measure our success by the success of our partners, our team members and our communities. Keeping their best interest at the forefront of every collaboration has become a source of inspiration for how we choose to operate. Austin Morris, Co-Founder and CEO of Development at Enclave

An Organization on the Grow

The majority of Enclave’s portfolio consists of their own developments, comprised of multifamily, mixed-use, and industrial projects across the mid-west and beyond. In addition to their real estate investment ventures, the team’s construction division builds award-winning spaces for clients like PRx Performance, Dakota Fence, Center for Special Surgery, and more.

Headquartered in West Fargo, ND, Enclave also has an office in St Louis Park, MN to support their growing portfolio of projects in the Twin Cities metro.

Space for Talent

If Enclave’s mission and vision are its foundation, then there’s no question its team members are the framework. Within Enclave’s walls and on every job site is a vibrant, growing team of brilliant self-starters who are driven, caring, and have a passion for learning.

“As a company focused on how people interact with spaces, it’s only natural that we are intentional about creating a workplace environment where our team feels empowered to do their best work and share in Enclave’s vision,” said Ben Meland, Co-Founder and CEO of Construction at Enclave.

Space for Good

Enclave strives to be a model for corporate citizenship. Their partnership with charities like United Way, Down Home, Habitat for Humanity, and others creates opportunities for team members to open their hearts and lend their time and talents toward non-profits which have a profoundly positive impact on the people these organizations serve.

“One of the attributes that attracted me to Enclave was their belief in giving back to our communities – our neighbors – who support what we are doing and our mutual desire to be supportive neighbors ourselves,” said Christina Graalum, Director of Marketing at Enclave. “Through company-paid volunteer hours and company-sponsored events, every team member has an opportunity to create space for good in a way that is most meaningful to them.”
