Despite the noise of new construction in Roosevelt Row, one developer has been strangely silent about a project that’s been years in the making.

Work is clearly underway on a new building on Fifth Street, just south of Roosevelt Street. But Desert Viking, the real estate development firm that announced plans for a mixed-use project in the area back in 2016, isn’t sharing details about what’s under construction, or other plans for moving the project forward.

Desert Viking, which is headed by Niels Kreipke, announced plans for a revitalization project called The Blocks of Roosevelt Row in October 2016. Those plans included renovating the former Flowers building on the south side of Roosevelt Street east of Fifth Street, which has since been completed.
