Development would create Montana's tallest building

By Justin Franz

BILLINGS — Billings officials are set to consider a $120 million development proposal that would add what would be the state’s tallest building to the city.

Developers revealed plans for the multiuse project Monday, which include a hotel, housing and retail and office space. There would also be two high-rise towers, one of which would be 324 feet tall.

According to the plan, the development would include both private and public investment, with some funds generated through the downtown tax increment funding district.

Supporters of the project say it would bring growth and attract new residents to the city.

The City Council is expected to review the development at a Sept. 12 meeting.

If approved, developers plan for construction to start next year and wrap up by 2019.
