The Merin Mixed-Use Development
Located on N Bozeman Ave, this 29 unit, 71,000 square foot, mixed-use condominium building was named The Merin after John Bozeman’s middle name, Merin. SMA worked with HomeBase Partners to design this high end, luxury condominium development in the quirky NE neighborhood of downtown Bozeman. Just a few steps from great restaurants, shops, access to trails and recreation, this development provides easy access to all downtown Bozeman has to offer.
The design is based on the simplicity of materials and an elegant aesthetic with two retail spaces and a refined entry at the west facade of the building on N Bozeman Ave, and a premium ground floor unit at the north facade facing the residential neighborhood. The overall form of the building was designed to respond to the residential zone directly to the north of the property, by manipulating the mass and scale to be reduced at that façade, while embracing the historic downtown’s context at the south west corner with an urban corner. The residential floors focus on providing a luxury experience with intricately designed units, for a total of (7) 1 bedroom units, (18) 2 bedroom units, and (4) 3 bedroom penthouse units at the 5th floor. The Merin was designed to serve the City of Bozeman’s goals for mid-rise density downtown and provide a diverse range of housing option to the future residents of a growing Bozeman.
