One Big Sky Center Update
One Big Sky Center developer Skip Ahern told the Billings City Council yesterday that tenants are being lined up and the exact size of the project is still to be determined. The MontDevCo partner told City Councilors he’s optimistic that the $165 million One Big Sky Center will be built, but added “This is not a slam dunk.” Developers have a June 30 deadline to sign an agreement with the city, which will include how much in tax increment financing the city will commit to the project.
Ahern said office space could be 85,000 square feet or more, saying one anchor tenant will sign a lease in the next few weeks. A hotel/convention center management company has also been signed. And a 120-unit senior living facility is now planned. A separate apartment building with 160 units will also be constructed.
