WDC's third Project Forum advised WDC developer member, Molly McCabe of Hayden Tanner, who is developing Parkline in Kalispell, Montana. Parkline was conceived to serve as the catalyst for the renewal of the Kalispell Core Area around the former downtown train tracks that are being redeveloped into a new linear park adjacent to Parkline. The proposed development has widespread public support and will redevelop a former 3.8-acre industrial site into a sustainable mixed-use development including office, retail ,maker space, and mixed-income multifamily residential with a net zero emissions target.
Janet Protas of Conor Commercial Real Estate moderated the experienced panel of advisors: Mary Campbell, Washington University St. Louis, Elizabeth Costello, Pocket Development and Terri Gumula, Sterling National Bank. Each WDC Project Forum is tailored to the specific needs of developer and began with a short presentation by the developer regarding the proposed development and its key challenges, which was followed by panelist questions, advice and actionable direction.
