New housing project, West 315 , in the works in Spokane

Community Frameworks is an origination that has already invested millions in Spokane to build new housing options for the local lower income population. They provide both apartments and a home ownership program, both here in Spokane and over in Bremerton,WA. .

In Spokane, Community Frameworks operates four apartment complexes. This includes Pioneer Park Place which itself is relatively new after the group remodeled a long vacant former nursing home on the Lower South Hill. Today, that complex is already operating on a wait list, showing that the need really is there in Spokane.

That's possibly the cause behind why Community Frameworks already has another new large apartment complex already in the development phase. What's different about this new project is it will actually replace a much smaller building that currently houses Community Framework's own Spokane offices.

The project is called West 315 and is called that because it will be built at 315 W. Mission, about a mile north of Downtown Spokane. Financing of the project appears to be close to falling into place now and if everything continues to run smoothly actual construction at West 315 should start sometime this Summer.


West 315 will be primarily a residential development, although early predevelopment meeting records should some non profits using office space on the first floor. Although, there is no mention of this anymore it is assumed that at least Community Frameworks will call the building home as their current office is on the same site as this new structure.

West 315 will feature 32 separate apartments with 1 management apartment also included. Some units will also be designated to help the homeless get housing. And, all units will be considered workforce housing.

Construction will be done by Kop Construction , design work by ZBA Architecture and engineering work by Gokey Engineering. 

This is the third major low income / homeless apartment complex announcement this year for Spokane. Over east of Downtown Spokane on E. Second Catholic Charities and Volunteers of America are also planning new apartment buildings, those however are actually larger then West 315.

At this time West 315 is not even mentioned yet on the Community Frameworks web site. But for more information about what this top notch organization does visit their site at-
