Main Street hasn’t looked quite the same since the Malchow’s fire last October. The 506 South Main Street lot has remained completely barren since the ruined building was torn down in November. Earlier in May, the Aberdeen Area Convention and Visitors Bureau announced plans to build Malchow Plaza over the empty lot. This $2.5 million plaza will include the construction of one new building and repairing the Anchors of Faith building that took on severe damage during the fire. The Convention and Visitors Bureau will be moving to the plaza upon completion, along with Aberdeen Development Corp., Dakota Broadcasting, the South Dakota Small Business Development Center, and The Market, a new business coming to Aberdeen. // — Karlie Spiry
