A New Option
Bridger View provides a new ownership and living option in Bozeman: 62 energy-efficient homes in a well-designed, walkable community.
The 8-acre pocket neighborhood will be welcoming and exceptionally livable, with shared greenspaces, a common house, and pathways connecting to Story Mill Community Park and Downtown Bozeman.
The neighborhood will bring together community members of varied income levels and backgrounds and in different stages of life.
Bridger View addresses a gap in Bozeman’s housing supply. It offers:
- Quality living space in smaller new homes (750-1,575 square feet).
- Shared streets designed to keep vehicle speeds low.
- Small private yards enlarged by common spaces.
- Generous front and back porches.
- Leading-edge efficiency, keeping monthly utility bills lower.
These and other elements of Bridger View reflect expertise and talents of evolveEA, a site-planning firm with deep experience in sustainable, quality-built neighborhoods, and Comma Q, an architectural firm known for enriching the built environments of communities across Montana.
Half of Bridger View’s 62 homes will be priced at levels that middle-income Bozeman residents can afford. The below-market prices are made possible by a new model that leverages modest home sizes that are less expensive to construct, proceeds from sales of the neighborhood’s market-rate homes, private philanthropy and public investment.
Today, Bozeman needs many different strategies to help individuals and families find homes that they can afford. Each approach is important, and more are needed.
Bridger View targets local “missing middle” households—residents who earn too much to qualify for existing affordable housing programs yet not enough to purchase a home at market rates.
