Construction on the Renaissance and the Central ramp began in fall of 2013. With complications between subcontractors and the developer along with the project being underbid by millions, it brought the construction of the two ramps to a halt. The Minot Area Development Corporation worked closely with the City of Minot to provide a solution to help support the heart of Minot.

MADC was able to secure $2.5 million in MAGIC Fund dollars to finance the project to completion. MADC's MAGIC Fund request enabled the project to move forward and bring relief to downtown merchants who endured many challenges with the construction. With the grand opening of the Renaissance ramp, it's a memorable milestone for Minot's downtown to start experiencing the benefits of this project. MADC and the City of Minot will continue to work closely and ensure the opening of the Central ramp.
