Hey, what's going in there? Nov. 24th 2014

Today I'm starting a new feature called " hey, what's going in there ? " based on the motto of this blog. This article will hopefully answer what is happening at some of the unmarked construction sites around Spokane.

If you have a project you'd like me to look into, contact me anytime!

Here are today's projects-

9th and Perry , Spokane

After hearing about this project for sometime construction is actually now underway for new building coming soon to the heart of one of Spokane's hottest neighborhoods, the South Perry Neighborhood.

The building will be built out with 2 floors, first floor being commercial with bay(s) for either restaurants or retail. The second floor will be used as a medical office.

Apartments we're also once included in the plans but appear to have been pulled out of the plans.

Construction by Newport Hwy. and Holland , near The Y.

A reader alerted me to this project because there is a rumor that this site would be a new Texas Roadhouse. And, although I too have heard of Texas Roadhouse coming to Spokane, this will not be the site it comes too.

However the construction you see today is for a new retail development to be anchored by a Sherwin Williams Paint store.

Tenants other the Sherwin Williams Paint are coming, but the paint retailer is the only store confirmed at the site right now. The new building's address will be 9412 N. Newport Hwy.

North Spokane Ramada becoming Laquinta Inn

Also in the 9000 block of N. Newport Hwy is the former North Spokane Ramada Inn hotel.

The business has been closed for a time and extensive remodeling is underway to convert the property to an all new LaQunita Inn.

The new North Spokane LaQunita Inn is located at 9601 N. Newport Hwy.

Construction next to Chuck E. Cheese in North Spokane.

The same reader who alerted me to the Sherwin Williams site also alerted me to a project next to Chuck E. Cheese. ( Thanks, reader !!! ) .

The site which is along N. Nevada will become and office building constructed by Silvey Construction, also of Spokane.  Plans call for a little over 14,000 square feet of office space on two floors with basement. No tenants however are known yet for this new building.

Tentatively the building is called the Nevada Professional Building.
