Former BLM building up for auction on Monday

The property formerly occupied by the Bureau of Land Management for Lewis and Clark National Forest is going up for auction on Monday.

The building is located at 1101 15th St. N. and has been vacant since the BLM moved to a new office in 2016. The new office is at the corner of River Drive and 38th St. N.

The starting bid for the 41,570 square foot building is $350,000.

The one-story building was originally constructed in 1958 and renovated in 1986 and 2002, according to the auction listing. The building sits on 2.58 acres.

The former Hastings property was sold at auction in August. The Electric has confirmed that the building sold during the auction, but is still working to confirm the buyer and if they have any plans for the property.

Other available properties in Great Falls include 38 acres surrounding the Smelter Avenue Walmart. The daily traffic count in that area was 22,555 in 2016 and 400 new home starts have been approved in the area. The property is for sale for $8.3 million.

A 57-acre parcel at the corner of 6th Street Northwest and Skyline Drive is on the market for $659,000. Development to the north of this parcel has included the continued growth of West Ridge, which is now in phase seven and the planning board will consider a Planned Unit Development for their next phases at their Oct. 17 meeting.  Also to the northeast is the Thaniel Addition, which includes 60 mutual self-help homes through NeighborWorks Great Falls. The first two phases of the NWGF homes have been completed.
