Development in Bozeman | Ferguson Farm - Bozeman Real Estate Group


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. 


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. 


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.

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. It is still unclear what will happen to Town & Country's existing location on 19th Avenue.

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 home to a collection of specialty retailers and artisans. The 21,000 sq.ft building is home to several businesses including Nordic Brew Works, Tanglewood, a restaurant from owners of Sidewinders, and Foxtrot, a fast-casual restaurant right in the middle of The Market. The Garden Barn opened their second location here, selling a wide variety of plants and pottery, and Catch, a women's clothing store is also located inside The Market. Hachi, a sushi restaurant is the newest eatery in the Market. You'll also find Salchicha, a lifestyle boutique, The Viv Bioactive, a reptile store, and the Cat Cafe where you can hang out with cats. It's fair to say the Market has an eclectic variety of businesses! The vision behind The Market was to create a vibrant gathering of artisans, restaurants, and specialty shops for the west side of Bozeman where people of all ages can dine, shop and enjoy entertainment.


After owning the land for decades, longtime Bozeman developers Delaney & Company began work on the Ferguson Farm infrastructure in 2014. The land was once owned by a family of farmers by the name of Ferguson, 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, an extensive selection of beer & wine, and spacious outdoor patio. Designed by Tomas Bitnar, the building itself 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.
