The Monarch Announces Grand Opening for November 1st with Official Unveiling of WBs Eatery, Art Box, The Monarch Venues and Creative Studios
After much anticipation, The Monarch building will celebrate its Grand Opening on November 1st as a celebratory culmination of a historic renovation project that got its start nearly eight years ago. After purchasing The Monarch building in 2011 and placing it on the National Register of Historic Places in 2012, Fischer-Regan Enterprises embarked on an extensive building rehabilitation with R&O Construction and Carbon Architects, with help from RDA, Historic and New Markets Tax Credits partners. Developer Thaine Fischer envisioned The Monarch as an incubator for Ogden artists and creative businesses, with the hope of cultivating an environment that would promote positive social and economic change in East Central Ogden. Now as it nears completion, Fischer reflects on the project while looking forward to its community impact.
“More than a decade ago when we redeveloped our first historic building in downtown Ogden, we had no idea of the social impact it would have within our community,” says Fischer. “Several buildings later we are ecstatic and humbled by the response. The Monarch is our boldest attempt to bring community impact to Ogden’s new Nine Rails Creative District. With the support of our community, creatives, tax credits and investment partners our vision is finally coming together. We believe this is just the beginning.”
