Over on the western edge of the Gonzaga University campus, construction is just getting started for a new six story apartment complex ( More on that here- http://www.inlandnwbusiness.com/2015/05/groundbreaking-tuesday-for-university.html ). But, also in the works and coming to an area around Gonzaga is a new large mixed use building. This mixed use project is in the planning phases just off of the eastern side of campus and nearby the Madonna Residence Hall.
The building is purposed for 1002 N. Hamilton, and while it is not officially coming yet, it looks promising as it continues to work it's way slowly through the planning processes. Here is a look at the most recent rendering of the project-
As you can see this building, which is yet un-named, will feature four story's of space. On the ground floor will be 17,000 square feet of commercial storefronts, all facing Hamilton, and likely perfect for restaurants, bars or retail businesses. Above that will be three stories of apartments, 66,000+ square feet and 57 units in all. Parking will be available in a lot at the rear of the building with garages to possibly be built for the apartment tenants.
A site plan of the site shows four separate retail spaces, but yet the above rendering appears to include many more possible businesses . Since the building is still " in the works " no commercial tenants have been announced. The apartment section is of course subject to change but the plans show a variety of 1 bed, 2 bed and 3 bed apartment units
The project is being developed by Ferdinand CJF,LLC with a Kent Hull listed as the main developer. Currently the project is out for SEPA review and does seem to be moving forward, although it is important to keep in mind that this is not the first project purposed for the prime piece of vacant real estate in the Hamilton Ave. corridor.
