GREAT NORTHERN TOWN CENTER

HELENA, MT

PORTFOLIO

Great Northern Town Center

Envisioned by local developer, Alan Nicholson, the Great Northern Town Center has transformed a blighted area in the heart of Helena into a thriving business, retail and living extension of the downtown.  In the fall of 1997 several different scenarios were explored for planning the 11 acre parcel.  The result is a simple organization  of the site with two main streets.  Great Northern Blvd. Runs north-south and 14th street connects the development east to west.  The “Entertainment District” comprises the north end with a Carousel, public gathering area, small shops and cafes.  The “Central District” is located at the intersection of the two streets and the Retail District” lines Great Northern Blvd.
