Housing Solutions is pleased to announce another project to be brought before the Montana Board of Housing. Valley View Village will be a 36 unit senior (age 55+) project in Helena located at the corner of McHugh Drive and Benchmark Drive in the Anderson Business Park. Similar to Kalispell, there is a dire need for senior housing in Helena. The mini market study indicated that the senior population is growing at more than three times the general population’s rate. It also indicated a demand for 228 new senior homes. There’s no doubt a need exists in the area.
The site, interestingly enough, is located near the existing River Rock Residences at the corner of McHugh Dr. and Benchmark Dr. This is just across the street from the Remington Apartments and directly next to the new Legacy assisted living facility. This particular area has seen significant growth and we believe Valley View would fit in perfectly with the existing development. North Montana Avenue is only a half mile away and with it comes a plethora of shopping opportunities. All within one mile, residents will be able to access Target, Ross, Applebees, Natural Grocers, Petco, Valley Bank of Helena, Rocky Mountain Credit Union, Glacier Bank, McKenzie River Pizza, Fuel Fitness and many other amenities. In addition, St. Peter’s Urgent Care is only a half a mile away for medical needs. Finally, the local Capital Transit red line has a bus stop off of Ptarmigan not far from Valley View’s front door. The site location could not be better.
