Big Sky is getting one new cafe in the next month, and a handful of existing businesses are relocating their offices to the butterfly-roofed building that’s approaching completion at the intersection of Highway 64 and Ousel Falls Road.
Lone Mountain Land Company, the property’s developer, is one of the businesses that will set up shop on the second floor of 25 Town Center Avenue. Big Sky Real Estate Co., LMLC’s recently formed realty brokerage giant, will also have offices on the second floor.
“We’re just excited to have a building that’s going to be used for multiple things—for visitors, for locals and as a [company] headquarters, too,” said Leslie Kilgore, Lone Mountain Land Company’s communications director.
There will be a soft opening for the 19,270-square-foot space in mid-June and a bigger event is planned for later in the month. The grand opening will include family activities, a beer garden and food from local vendors.
Compass Café by Sola will move into the ground floor and patrons of Sola Café in Bozeman will find many overlapping elements, as it will be owned and operated by the same team. Made-from-scratch fare complete with gluten-free, dairy-free and vegan options will be available. Customers can take their food to go or opt for dine-in service. Bozeman’s Treeline Coffee Roasters will supply java and there will be a handful of beverages on tap like iced tea, lemonade and kombucha.
Montana Supply will sell many of the same products as High Country Goods, with an expanded inventory of light recreation equipment including camping gear. Kilgore said High Country Goods, an apparel and accessories design company, has already moved out of their old space, also located in Town Center.
The lower level of 25 Town Center Avenue will also include a staffed concierge service and sales space, where the Big Sky Real Estate Co. team will meet clients and visitors can find out more about Big Sky and its surroundings and book activities. “It’s basically a [place] in downtown Town Center where locals can hang out and visitors can get more information about the area,” Kilgore said.
Later this summer will see the launch of more businesses in Town Center: Moe’s Original Bar B Que and gourmet cupcake purveyor Caffe Luxxe are slated to move into the building next door, joining Lotus Pad and The Spice & Tea Exchange.
