Bozeman's northeast side has quietly been developing into an eclectic neighborhood. If you're a native or long-time local you'll remember this as being a "rough" part of town. There was always lots of industrial spaces, with small homes throughout. Over the past decade, more businesses have found their way to the northeast side. Breweries, a small music venue, bakeries, and coffee shops were the first ones to pop up. The small homes are being replaced with modern custom homes and more development. The latest in this historic neighborhood is a six-building project on 2-acres between Cottonwood and Ida.

The development has plans for 92 residential units along with artist studios and space for industrial use. Thinktank hopes to create a community where people can live and work in the same area. The largest building will be three stories with 64 apartments. There will be a walkway that will connect to almost 30,000 square feet of offices. The old Misco Mill will remain as a center in the outdoor public area while the plan is to change the grain warehouse into a restaurant. A 12-unit apartment building, mixed-used building and another 16 units are also part of the plan in the development. The hope is to make the homes and commercial space more attainable to people in Bozeman that can't keep up with Bozeman's high prices.
