Bozeman's northeast side has quickly been developing into an eclectic, thriving, and busy area. If you're a native or long-time Bozeman local, you'll remember the northeast side of Bozeman as being a "rough" part of town. But over the past decade, more businesses have found their way to the northeast side and it has become a hub for artists, coffee shops, tech companies, breweries, and restaurants. In recent years, we've seen significant developments in areas like the Cannery District, the Mill District and the Brewery District that have brought life to what used to be Bozeman's industrial area. Three-story residential buildings are filling up old abandoned lots and plans are on the table for a 2-acre parcel to be developed into an entire live/work community. Keep reading for details.

The Wildlands Development is an expansion and planned renovation of an existing building on the corner of Peach Street and Wallace. This is the building that Wild Crumb is currently in. Once complete, it will be three levels each with around 4,550 square feet. The first level will consist of commercial space and an enclosed parking garage. The second level will have four 2BD units, the bedrooms of the two 2-story units and one 3BD unit. The third level will have two 2BD units, the living and kitchen area of the two 2-story units, and two 3BD units. All the residences will feature private covered decks.
Cottonwood and Ida
The Cottonwood and Ida project on Bozeman's Northeast side will be the largest development to date in this area of Bozeman. Thinktank, the developers behind the project are the same developers who revitalized the Rialto Theatre and built the Lark Hotel. The Cottonwood and Ida project has been approved by the city to include 73 residential units and more than 24,000 sq.ft of commercial space. The community will be walkable and bikeable and will have more than 38,000 sq. ft of public plazas and landscaped areas. The project will also include a variety of commercial spaces with space for offices, retail, and artist studios. There will be public plaza spaces and a pavilion designed for CSA drop-offs, private events, and public meetings. Photo credit: www.bozemanrudat.com.
BG Mill Project
Plans for a 5 story, mixed-use building just one block from Main Street include 10 luxury residential units, office, and commercial space. It is claimed that this will be the "most exclusive mid-rise residential offering" in downtown Bozeman. The mill building is a recognizable landmark in Bozeman that has sat vacant for decades. While the building can't be repurposed, the developers hope to reclaim two of its silos as part of the design of the new building. The project has been approved by the city but has not begun construction.
