Construction permits have now been filed with the City of Spokane, and thanks to the work of Baker Construction, site work is complete on what is apparently to be called University Apartments at 940 N. Ruby St in Spokane.
This new apartment complex will be large, in fact it will offer six floors in all. And five floors of livable spaces above a ground floor parking / entry area. Here is a rendering we we're able to locate on what this building will likely look like once complete-
This new apartment building is located on blocks north of Downtown Spokane. And, of bigger importance just a short walk off campus at Gonzaga University. These new apartments are meant primarily for students of Gonzaga, and is being developed privately.
The building will be next to The Arc of Spokane Thrift Store and across N. Ruby from the abandoned Centennial Mills Complex.
There will be 60 apartments available in the building with 213 beds. Units will come fully furnished and have access to many on site amenities. Among them will be two fitness centers, study space, game room , secure bicycle storage and a café.
But don't count on leasing an apartment at 940 N. Ruby just yet as the estimated completion date is still over a year away. Likely in the later half of 2016.
