Built in 1908, and unused since 2005, the Rialto Theater has been given new life as a cultural resource and entertainment venue in the heart of downtown Bozeman. After an extensive two-year remodel and seismic retrofit the Rialto re-opened its doors to patrons early this year. The majority of the historic building’s interior was removed to fit the new architectural program. Developers including ThinkTank Design Group collaborated with general contractor North Fork Builders and structural engineers Nishkian Monks to repurpose the interior spaces, enhancing the patron’s experience, while maintaining the building’s existing exterior design.
The transformation of a former pea cannery in Bozeman’s Cannery District on the northeast end of town into a four-story office/mixed-use facility is almost complete. Construction crews are hard at work throughout the site, finishing details and completing those areas not yet ready for public access. The developers, Cannery District Partners LLC, with Comma-Q Architecture, Langlas & Associates, and Nishkian Monks, hope to provide a new mixed-use and commercial/retail space to an up and coming live-work neighborhood.
