Cannery District to be Renovated, Become Business Hub Within Bozeman
Developers in Bozeman are looking to renovate the Cannery District, an industrial sector to the Northeast of town. Given its name from the old pea cannery that did business there in the early 1900’s, the district had been used almost solely for industrial use. Now, the developers of the area are looking to create a new hub of commercial activity. Plans include renovating the older buildings while also constructing 7 new buildings. Owners will be looking to strip the old buildings down to the bone, in order to get them back to their roots. They will also make the buildings more energy efficient, without losing the historical significance of the district. By project’s finish, the district should have 15 buildings in total that would cost roughly 15 million dollars. Tenants have already been secured for many of the new buildings. Even now, coffee shops, breweries and restaurants have already moved into the district.
