The large brick warehouse at 116 W. Pacific in Downtown Spokane has a very interesting history starting life as a cold storage warehouse undoubtedly for the trains on the railroad viaduct that sits directly behind the Pacific Ave. building. And while the building was used for a time a warehouse for the now closed Sylvan's Furniture store it has sat completely empty for sometime now. But all that is changing.
Construction crews are already at work and plan to continue working through out the winter on a large remodel of the building which should be completed sometime in the Spring of 2014. Once complete to building will look similar to this artist rendering...
Design work for the building's rehab was done by Spokane based Nystrom & Olson Architecture . Plans for the site include : - Retail / Restaurant space on the main floor
- Office space on the second floor
- Residential lofts on the third floor
New parking would also be created in the building's basement. The entire neighborhood around 116 W. Pacific is actually undergoing some changes with a few new business and a couple of other remodeling projects in various stages nearby.
No tenants have been announced for this new project as of yet, nor has there been an official building name been announced, if there will be one.
