The Globe Building, historically home to the Globe Hotel, and more recently home to the Globe Bar & Grille has a new owner and like a lot of other Downtown buildings right now, a lot big things are coming soon.
The Globe Hotel building is located on the eastern edge of Downtown Spokane at the corner of Main and N. Division ( 211 N. Division ). The building has sat empty since the former bar's closure in later 2012 but all of that will soon change.
The building has been sold to local real estate investors,Kevin Edwards, Mark D’Agostino and John Pariseau operating as Globe Building Partners,LLC . The plans are currently a little vague but are still coming soon.
The ground floor will remain for commercial uses and will defiantly contain some sort of bar as a liquor license application has already been filed. We have heard some of the space may become retail and have also heard that the neighboring Blind Buck bar may expand into some of the Globe's space.
We are expecting to learn more on these plans very soon.
The upper two floors of the Globe Building will also be completely renovated and re-opened. Those plans are also vague with those floors becoming either office space or new apartments. But no mention of how many apartments, offices or news on potential tenants. The upper floors of the Globe Building have been vacant for many years.
