BUTTE, Mont. (AP) — NorthWestern Energy will break ground this week on a new $25 million building in Butte.
The Montana Standard reports (bit.ly/TixRFC) the South Dakota-based company's new Montana headquarters will be uptown Butte's largest building project in decades. City and business leaders hope it will spur more investments that will revitalize an area still struggling with vacancies and blight.
The groundbreaking is scheduled for Thursday. Danny Kaluza of Northwestern Energy says the company is looking at the project as a 50- to 100-year investment.
The 110,000 square-foot building should be completed by January 2016. It will sit at Park and Main streets, an area of the business district where apartments, condominiums, offices, retail stores and a restaurant have been developed recently.
