The Idea:

The Montana Sustainability Center (MSC) is a campus style development that will offer a variety of sustainable retail, office, and warehouse space. Environmental, alternative energy, social justice, for-profit, non-profit: if it’s sustainable this could be your space. Locating multiple organizations and experts together in one location will boost the regional green/sustainable business movement by strengthening all of the participating organizations. Benefits and synergies of the Montana Sustainability Center include the following:

  • The Center will incubate and nurture growth; many of the businesses/organizations operating in the green /sustainable products fields need to grow but have run out of space at their current locations. For example, the Center’s anchor tenant, Home Resource is moving from under 7,000 net SF to 20,000 net SF;
  • The Center will allow the participating businesses to leverage their shared customer bases in one location, i.e. regional one stop shopping for all green/sustainable products and services, creating a top of mind space brand and location awareness;
  • The Center will enable its occupants to achieve economies of scale in marketing and distribution;
  • The Center will enable its occupants to achieve increased capacity and higher efficiency by sharing conference rooms, office equipment, phone systems, and computer networks;
  • The Center will allow businesses with shared values to cross pollinate ideas creating new products, services, business models, and technologies;
  • The Center will demonstrate sustainable business methods and alternatives throughout the facility and broaden the market for green goods and services;
  • The Center will be a conduit for local green activities and national/global green activities.
