It doesn't take more than a drive around town to see that construction in Bozeman is booming! The growth in the northwest part of town, in particular, is going pretty crazy as we sprawl our way towards Four Corners. Most of these new subdivisions have both single and multi-family homes being built and a focus on a neighborhood feel with trails, open space, and parks. Here's a look at some subdivisions that everyone is loving in Bozeman right now...
For a long time this subdivision seemed like it was going to stay an empty field. Then suddenly there were a couple houses and in the past month it’s really started to develop. Located between Ferguson and Flanders Mill on two sides with Oak and Durston bordering the other two. This 137-acre park-like neighborhood is in a prime location near the 100-acre Regional Park and several schools, including where the new high school is proposed to go. The subdivision will have 36-acres of parkland and common space throughout with 26 of these acres to be developed parks. Two large connected ponds are also planned as well as some of the Gallatin Valley Land Trust trail system. We love how much this subdivision is focusing on use of the outdoor space and recreation that makes living in Bozeman so great. There are several homes currently for sale and a few lots, but they won’t be around for long!
This subdivision was designed to create a real sense of community. It centers around two lakes totaling 12-acres and offers big mountain views. Located at the corner of Durston and Cottonwood, this will be the last phase of the popular Valley West subdivision. The concept for the Lakes is the use of woonerfs which is a strange word you probably haven’t heard around Bozeman. (If by chance you are from the Netherlands you would know all about it!) Woonerf is a living street that minimizes the area consumed by streets in a neighborhood and encourages interaction among residents. There are a few lots left available by the builder and a few homes left as well in phase 1 and 2.
Situated between Bozeman and Four Corners, this new development takes advantage of our rural landscape with the convenience of being close to town. It creates a natural setting with wide streets and sidewalks for a neighborhood feel with small pods of homes. Woodland Park features responsible design, parks and quiet streets. The park system will consist of small parks in each pod with a linear trail to connect the system. The trail has Middle Creek to the south and views all around. It has been designed with the natural landscape in mind.
There’s not nearly as much development going on south of town compared to the northwest, however Southbridge is a big one on this end of Bozeman. It is located right off of S. 19th near Meadow Creek subdivision. There are fantastic views of the Spanish Peak, Bridger and Hyalite Mountains. It’s easy to get to MSU, downtown and you’re still just a five-minute drive to Hyalite for all your outdoor recreation. There is a nice amount of open space and future parks planned. With nice size lots and all these amenities, it is quickly becoming a coveted subdivision on the southside of Bozeman.
5. Baxter Meadows West and West Winds
These two are established subdivisions that have actually been around for a while. However, they have recently seen a burst of new phases and construction. Baxter Meadows West now stretches to Harper Pucket and several new homes are currently under construction here. The lots are large and so are the homes. This subdivision has wonderful views of the Bridgers, plus a nice trail system and park.
West Winds has also been around for many years but saw a big slow down while the Bozeman market recovered. Take a drive around here and you’ll see it is back in full force with lots of homes going up each month and development getting ready for the next phases. It's proximity to Baxter and Oak makes it convenient to just about everything.
