The Sleepy Inn deconstruction project at 1427 W. Broadway reached substantial completion on May 12, 2023. The Missoula Redevelopment Agency (MRA) and the City of Missoula Brownfields Program in the Community Planning, Development, & Innovation (CPDI) department entered into a contract with 3 River Landworks, LLC for hazardous building materials abatement, building deconstruction, and building removal at the Sleepy Inn property at 1427 West Broadway St. in February 2023. 3 Rivers is a Montana based general contractor and partnered with Abatement Contractors of Montana (ACM) and Heritage Timber to complete abatement and deconstruction. For details of the allocation of TIF and Brownfields funds, please see the April 2023 MRA Board memo.
The MRA’s policy requires deconstruction and material salvage/recycling, to the extent feasible, for buildings being removed with tax increment financing. At the beginning of the project Heritage Timber estimated that approximately 60 percent of the building materials could be salvaged and diverted from the landfill. Included below is a summary of the major building materials that were diverted from the landfill with the Sleepy Inn project:
The property is currently listed for sale at $890,000 and marketing of the property continues. The City of Missoula Affordable Housing Trust Fund is expected to receive funds from the sale of the property to invest back into affordable housing in our community. The history of the Sleepy Inn site, including costs over time, can be found in the Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ's) on the City of Missoula website.
