Visions for a Historic Building Bank

  • First Montana Bank acquired the former Montgomery Ward Building in downtown Missoula in 2003 with the vision of renovating the structure to accommodate their corporate headquarters and downtown banking branch.

Partnership to Preservation

  • A National Registry building, the renovation required working closely with the National Park Service, State Historic Preservation Office, and the Missoula Historic Preservation Office.


  • The project involved an exterior renovation, interior remodeling, and renovation of all four stories, and the conversion of an existing freight elevator to a new passenger elevator.

Commons

  • With a vibrant commons and cafeteria adjoining the main entry, the school feels welcoming to students and the community, while a gym and stage holds other community events and performances. The school's entries are designed to activate the surrounding downtown and neighborhood areas.
