BIG SKY – Perhaps you’ve noticed the mountain of dirt sitting just east of Lone Peak Cinema. By November, it will be 32 Town Center Avenue, a 9,000-square-foot, two-story building with three commercial spaces on the ground floor and four apartments above.
The approximately $2 million project, which will abut the east side of Lone Peak Cinema, is being developed and built in coordination with TNG Development and Rotherham Construction. It is phase 1 of a two-part project that will include a second building of the same size slated for construction next summer.
Designed by Bechtle Architects, in Bozeman, both buildings will have open-air walkways allowing foot traffic to pass through from Town Center Avenue to the parking lot on the south side. “It’ll give it that city feel with the zero lot line, but then it allows foot traffic flow between the spaces,” said TNG President John Romney, meaning the two buildings will share a wall. Romney also developed the movie theater and owns neighboring Ousel and Spur Pizza Co.
