    A Proposed Solution—

    Montana's Housing Crisis

    Montana is in a housing crisis, and Helena itself has been dramatically impacted. Our town has a long history of attracting talented laborers and outdoor enthusiasts from around the state and the country. Unfortunately, this tradition is being stopped in its tracks by the lack of affordable housing options; the demand is far greater than the supply resulting in sky-rocketing home prices that have become out of reach for many. Helena has less than a hundred homes on the market here today. We have proposed a solution to help our town with a small part of this problem.

    Our Goal—

    Is To Offer A Variety Of Home Styles & Prices

    Imagine a city neighborhood where residents will have direct access to acres of parks, miles of trails, safe paths to excellent public schools, and proximity to all that nearby downtown Helena has to offer. Most importantly, a neighborhood that connects us to what we treasure most in Helena: homesites with mountain views, open spaces, and easy wilderness access from this carefully planned vision. A place with homes that a variety of people can afford and manage, with affordable options for multi-family condos and single-family homes on lots ranging in size up to a half-acre, and an array of carefully designed, location-appropriate plans.

    A Variety Of Homes For all—

    Single-Family Homes & Condos

    We believe neighborhoods should be multi-generational, multi-socioeconomic, have public access to open spaces, and be designed with environmental considerations at heart to be thriving communities. To quote the Prickly Pear Land Trust, we believe it’s essential to “connect people to the land.” Sussex is striving to accomplish precisely this at Westside Woods.

    we've worked tirelessly—

    To Embrace The Helena Lifestyle

    Our vision for Westside Woods was born out of respect for its topography. Quality, sustainability, safety, and green building practices guide us at every turn. This land inspires us all. We treasure it and want to honor it with responsible development while also meeting our community’s needs. To create our vision for this beloved landscape encompassing expansive views, open spaces, and connectivity to a network of trails we’ve partnered with:

    • Land Conservationists
    • Engineers
    • City staff
    • Traffic experts
    • Neighborhood design consultants
    Wellbeing—

    Community-Centric Neighborhood

    Sussex Construction is Helena-owned and operated and has created several quality Helena communities- Heron Creek, Ridgeview, and Sussex Park. We chose this beautiful land with both the head and the heart. Lewis and Clark County Community Development and Planning Department identified this land as a future growth area for the City. With over 25 years of experience in design, building, and development, Sussex created the Westside Woods to help fill the housing gap and create jobs.

    Connection—

    Access To City Parks & Open Spaces

    The nearby Mount Helena trail system will get bigger and better with the addition of Westside Woods. As a result, locals will enjoy more miles of trails and open spaces to explore. In addition, homeowners will wake each day to see the Sleeping Giant nestled amongst the North Hills in the Rocky Mountains. The exceptional design and building standards planned for Westside Woods will protect the nearby property’s value and enhance the neighborhood. Helena spoke, and we listened.
