Behind Burger Time is a massive construction project in Waite Park. This isn't a small building going in, it looks like it's 1/2 the size of a small city!

You can't help but stare at this monstrosity as you're driving by on Division Street and 6th Avenue, it's almost a driving hazard.

What used to be a mobile home park has been completely cleared out and the big open area is the future home of 2 hotels and conference center in between them.


The convention/event center is set to be 27,000 square foot and can hold up to 800 people. It isn't nearly the size of the River's Edge Convention Center near downtown St. Cloud, but would be a great solution for events with smaller attendance.

The 2 additional hotels in the area are exciting to see, as there aren't enough hotels in the area. Especially in Waite Park, where shopping is overwhelming, and a mall a couple blocks down.

It'll be interesting to see how quickly this site gets built and the next couple months! I'm looking forward to booking a night at one of the hotels...they better have a stellar pool in one of them!
