Purpose-built in 1988 to house Western Montana’s premier newspaper, the Missoulian Building is situated on over 3.5 acres of downtown riverfront property in Missoula, Montana. The masonry building offers over 17,000 square feet of open-concept office space on the main level. The walls of this space have borne witness to the most important stories of the last 30 years, and housed reporters telling the story of Missoula growing into the western boomtown that it is today. Massive windows frame the view of the river along the property’s northern border. The additional 8,500 square feet on this level currently serves as the paper’s distribution center, with exterior access via large garage doors and a loading dock. On the ground level of the building, in addition to 9,200 square feet of office space, the massive concrete structure is visible in the 17,000 square foot press area. Here, Volkswagon-sized rolls of paper and vats of ink the size of railroad cars were once the norm, and the volume of this space means that the sky is the limit for its next iteration.
Turn the page of history and bring your vision to this distinctive piece of downtown Missoula, Montana.
What about the newspaper?
The 56,000 square foot, purpose built facility is for sale for the first time in its history. What does this mean for the newspaper you ask? The Missoulian is as committed as ever to remaining our hometown newspaper. Whether they are located in a different building, or lease a portion of the current building from the new owner, the work will continue. As a general consensus within the organization, the Missoulian building is underutilized, and its prime real estate location makes it an attractive prospect for interested buyers. The building is located at the seat of the Higgins Bridge and across the Clark Fork River from Missoula’s thriving Downtown scene. Saturday Markets, Caras Park, Brennan’s Wave, Missoula’s Carousel, and countless restaurants, breweries, distilleries and art galleries are just a short distance away, meaning this property is sure to be another hub of Missoula life.
