The Garden District is an affordable housing complex developed by the Missoula Housing Authority in Missoula, MT. The three buildings are primarily wood framed for efficiency, with open web joists in the floor system to provide easy access for the mechanical, electrical, and plumbing trades. The building's uniformity proved to be a very efficient use of open web joists. Balconies and several canopies extend from the buildings for additional architectural appeal. Photovoltaic panels were also added to the roof with a steel structural gridwork for support.
