Dunn Brown Building

In 2006, Steve contacted the BID to look for property to invest in. He could have bought property anywhere in the United States and he chose Great Falls. The Dunn Brown building at 316 Central to be exact. His vision was to take this mixed use building and refurbish the upper floors of the apartment buildings into more updated living space and to completely remodel the lower retail spaces into a shopping/eating boutique-like setting. His vision was something you would see in downtown San Diego or Seattle.



The BID provided funding for NeighborWorks to update their façade at 509 1st Ave S.
