RiverView Apartments

RiverView Apartments is a collaboration between Lone Mountain Land Company, Resort Tax, Big Sky Water & Sewer, and BSCHT to develop rental units off Lone Mountain Trail.

Applications are now open for BSCHT – RiverView

In 2021, the Housing Trust announced its collaboration with Lone Mountain Land Company to build RiverView Apartments. Construction began in May of 2023 with occupancy anticipated in late summer of 2024. Although LMLC and BSCHT shared some infrastructure costs, the two developments used different contractors and funding sources.

For more information about BSCHT’s portion of the project, including amenities and floorplans, please visit the Property Website

How To Apply

  1. Review the income limit chart below.
  2. If you feel you qualify, complete the online application.
  3. Please read all instructions carefully as there are very strict qualification guidelines and document requirements.
  4. If you have any questions, please email riverview@blpmc.com.

Applications are being processed by BlueLine Property Management and income limits are set by HUD. If you are disqualified due to income, please bear in mind that neither BlueLine nor BSCHT can make any exceptions due to the federal funding aspect of the project.


Income is the most significant factor in qualifying to rent at Riverview. If your household is within or close to the limits in the income chart below, please apply. The incomes listed are gross income limits (pre-taxes). 


The rent reflected in the chart below includes a utility allowance. The precise amount of the allowance is still being determined. If you are between incomes in the chart, your rent will be the lower of the two amounts. Proof of income includes your six most recent consecutive pay stubs.


If you or your household want to rent at RiverView Apartments but make too much money to qualify for BSCHT-RIVERVIEW, please complete the Individual Survey. Please note that completing a prior survey does not guarantee a position in line for a RiverView Apartment. Rental rates and application information are not yet available. LMLC anticipates the occupation of its apartments in the Fall of 2024.


If you own a business in Big Sky and need employee housing, please complete the Business Survey. Lone Mountain Land Company built its portion of the project with private funding only. Because of this, none of LMLC’s units need to meet the federal income guidelines outlined in the chart above. In the fall, LMLC will lease its shared suites with single occupancy bedrooms to local businesses to use as employee housing.
