Adaptive Reuse Overlay Rezoning: 508 S 3rd St W

CLOSED: This discussion has concluded.

UPDATE: On September 2nd, City Council adopted the ordinance to rezone this property. This case is now closed for comment.


An application is under review for a request to rezone the property located at 508 S. 3rd Street West to apply the /AR Adaptive Reuse Overlay. The property is currently zoned C1-4 Neighborhood Commercial with the /DE-C Design Excellence Corridor Typology 2 Overlay.

The applicant makes this request in anticipation of increasing the number of units in the existing multi-dwelling building from sixteen (16) to twenty-two (22) dwelling units, which will exceed the allowed density under the current zoning. A project within the /AR District may exceed the maximum density established by the underlying zoning district for the parcel, so long as the added density is allowable by building code.

The building is a contributing building to the Southside Historic District on the National Register of Historic Places, is eligible for individual listing on the National Register of Historic Places, and is listed on Missoula’s Local Inventory of Historic Resources. The applicant plans to restore and renovate the building using the Secretary of the Interior’s standards for historic building rehabilitation.

Based on these historical characteristics, the Historic Preservation Commission and the Historic Preservation Officer determined that the project qualifies for the /AR District Overlay.
