City Council Members Tour New Downtown Garage

Posted: Updated:
BILLINGS -

Billings City Council receives the very first tour of the new empire parking garage on Monday afternoon.

The structure includes more than 550 parking spots and more than 17,000-square-feet of retail space.

Billings councilman Mike Yakowich says the garage has fantastic architectural structure.

Yakowich says it's something he thinks billings can be proud of.

"I hope the city of Billings can really just be proud of it when they walk through it. There are great businesses, a great facility on the basement part, bus as one person said, it really blends into the community with the brick. Just a nice design," says Billings City Council Member Mike Yakowich.

The next step will be for businesses to move into the new structure.
