Midtown Welcomes New Development

A trip down the Brooks Street corridor certainly has a different look to it in 2019 compared to recent years. Even if you have yet to catch a show at the AMC dine-in theater, grab a slice of pizza at the new Bridge location, or enjoy a beverage at The Dram Shop Central, it’s easy to see all the fresh amenities popping up in our area. With further development already underway and additional projects anticipated in the coming months, it’s evident that the allure of Midtown is growing for businesses, employees, residents, and visitors in and around Missoula. 

Another addition nearing completion is the three-story Stockman Bank building, which will open its third Missoula location next week at 3615 Brooks Street. Grand-opening activities are planned throughout the week, with a ribbon-cutting ceremony scheduled for Wednesday, October 2, at 4pm with refreshments and hors d’ oeuvres following until 7pm.

Just behind that new bank location, Envision Commercial Construction is set to break ground on a three-story executive office building with commercial condos at 2315 McDonald Ave. The opening is planned for the summer of 2020, and over half of the space is already under contract. 

These new office structures on a prime corner of Brooks Street will be a nice welcome for folks coming into town from the Bitterroot Valley; and, along with other destined developments to come, should continue to enhance Midtown’s appeal as an attractive destination for many years into our community’s future.

NorthWestern Energy and partners Missoula County Public Schools and the City of Missoula built solar installations at Hellgate, Sentinel, Big Sky and Willard high schools. The $1 million pilot project, funded and maintained by NorthWestern Energy, is part of large-scale studies around creating renewable energy solutions that can meet the demands of the regional energy grid. The project focuses on urban solar installations and education. MCPS students and teachers have hands-on learning experiences that will prepare students for jobs and help ensure a sustainable future. With data made available through a website hosted by NorthWestern Energy (nwesolar.com), Science, Math, and CTE teachers have written curriculum around analyzing the data and learning about solar energy for use in high school classrooms.
