The level of design, and operation of the project must be commensurate with high-quality, historic and individualized, non-franchised architecture. Respondent must show demonstrated successes in developing and operating garages and other large scale developments.

The property development opportunity is to design, build and operate a full-service parking garage with other potential amenities, to be determined by the developer. The project is intended to attract more Uptown patrons, businesses and investment and to promote the City-County of Butte-Silver Bow (BSB) as a strong tourism, retail, and entertainment, cultural and professional destination. The project must be consistent with BSB plans that relate to its historic Uptown core and dynamic Central Business District including but not limited to the stated goals of the Urban Revitalization Agency’s Urban Renewal Plan.

It is the intention of BSB to:
1. Develop (at a minimum) 250 Space Parking Garage for the public benefit, and exploration of the option for conference space and a “green” roof and;
2. Enhance the dynamic environment of Uptown Butte with a parking structure that promotes and compliments the area’s existing retail, dining, entertainment, accommodation, and meeting venues;
3. Serve as an added catalyst for continued economic growth and provide a direct economic benefit to Butte;
4. Maximize the site’s potential in a creative and complementary manner; reflect and respect the historical, architectural and spatial context of the sites; and
5. Further the goals and objectives of Butte-Silver Bow and the URA, as outlined in the adopted Urban Revitalization Plan.

The development opportunity is located on a 16,342 square foot parcel known as Mural Park located on Park Street in Uptown Butte (most city’s traditional Downtown), and the surface parking lot to the south. The parcel presently serves as a surface parking lot and bus transfer stop and contains 48 parking spaces. The property was acquired by BSB in 1976 and 1978. Additionally, the parcel is located in the heart of Uptown, centered on Park Street, surrounded by restaurants, shops and art galleries.
The site is owned by BSB and currently managed by the BSB Parking Commission as a public parking lot and green-space parcel.
