Ferguson Farm has quickly grown on Bozeman's west side. Starting with Sidewinders and the Market directly behind, and then continuing south and now east. The first phase of development is complete and the second phase is in the planning phase. Here is what is happening in Ferguson Farm, including businesses in the development.
Phase II of Ferguson Farm is moving forward and they plan to develop 31 acres east of the existing phase I of Ferguson Farm and just south of The Ridge. It will stretch from Resort Drive to south Ferguson Ave. The area is zoned as urban mixed-use and the preliminary plat shows 35 buildings between 2-5 stories tall with 883 parking spaces and park space. This phase will mostly consist of commercial buildings with developers proposing around 850,000 sq.ft of commercial space, including a hotel on the property. There is also talk of dense, urban, multi-story residential units. As with phase I of Ferguson Farm, they intend for the development to be pedestrian-friendly, including a walking trail alongside a creek.
City commissioners have approved the development's planned unit development. This means they can ask the city for deviations from city codes if they provide public benefits. They plan to have a mix of commercial space, such as offices and restaurants which is why they are looking to reduce the number of required parking spots because businesses will be open at different hours.
Town & Country has purchased 4.14 acres in Ferguson Farm and has filed plans for their new location in Bozeman. The new Town & Country location will be north of The Market on the edge of Fallon Street. Construction is in progress and they expect to open June 2024. It is still unclear what will happen to Town & Country's existing location on 19th Avenue.
The Icon Apartments, a “highly amenitized” 336-unit apartment development are on the north end of Ferguson Farm between Fallon and Babcock Street. The apartment buildings are two and three-story “garden style” apartment buildings with amenities like a fitness center, pool, 1.8-acre park & recreation area, business center, library, pet spa, and more. The Icon Apartment Homes at Ferguson Farm are available to rent and cater to young professionals, families, college students, and other clientele.
Schedulicity, a global company that is headquartered in Bozeman, is located in Ferguson Farm on the corner of Valley Commons Drive and Boardwalk Avenue.
The most prominent building to date in the Ferguson Farm development, The Market is a 21,000 Sq.Ft building home to a collection of specialty retailers and artisans. The vision behind the Market was to create a vibrant gathering area for the west side of Bozeman where people of all ages can dine, shop, and enjoy entertainment.
Tanglewood is a restaurant from the owners of Sidewinders located in the Market building. It is a casual restaurant that offers a simple menu in a fun environment. They have indoor and outdoor seating and with lots of room is a good place for larger groups. They serve dinner 7 nights a week and a yummy brunch on weekends!
Liberty Burger is the newest restaurant in the Market. Previously home to Foxtrot, Liberty Burger offers the same casual vibe where you order at the counter and find a seat either inside or on the spacious patio. The menu features all variations of hamburgers, a few salad options, and the best giant onion rings!
The Garden Barn opened a second location in the Market. They sell a wide variety of plants, pottery, and novelty gifts. They have a huge selection of stickers and it's a great spot to find that unique gift for a friend. Right above them is the CATSHOW CAFE. This is the place to go for all cat lovers! You can reserve a time to go spend time with the cats. They partner with Heart of the Valley to foster the harder-to-adopt cats in hopes of finding them their forever home. This is a not-for-profit business run by the owners of Garden Barn.
This restaurant is located in the Market building and specializes in street-casual izakaya, sushi, and Japanese pub food. It's a large space with an open kitchen and lots of energy. They also have video games, shuffleboard, and more which makes Hachi stand out from the other sushi restaurants in town!
THE WELL JUICERY
The Well Juicery is located in the same building as Schedulicity on the west end. They have a nice variety of juices, and smoothies, plus breakfast and lunch items. There are grab-and-go options or indoor seating. Not only are the juices here awesome, the space is so well done and inviting.
After owning the land for decades, longtime Bozeman developers Delaney & Company began work on the Ferguson Farm infrastructure in 2014. A family of farmers named Ferguson once owned the land, hence the project's name. The “Fortuna Building” was the first building in Ferguson Farm to be completed, and now houses Bechtle Architects, Big Sky Dermatology, Chi Nail Bar, and Robinson & Melzer Family Dental.
One of the most recognizable buildings in Ferguson Farm is the Sidewinders building. Sidewinders has become a favorite restaurant on Bozeman’s west side with its classic American-style menu, family-friendly atmosphere, extensive selection of beer & wine, and spacious outdoor patio. Designed by Tomas Bitnar, the building features 8,000 sq.ft of space, a south-facing wall of windows, and modern, clean lines.
The Palisades Building, a 6,600 sq.ft commercial building with a design that awarded the architect, Thomas Bitnar, the 2017 Excellence in Design “Merit” award was completed in 2017. The building is home to Single Barrel Liquor, Lone Peak Physical Therapy, and offices.
