It was only about 5 months ago, I reported on the sale of Downtown Spokane's Norman Building ( 1121 W. 1st Ave ) and the Jefferson Building ( 115 S. Jefferson ) . At the time of the sale we knew the new owners, Yellow Door Properties,LLC planned renovations but had little information about the work. But, now we are learning the buildings will be developed together into mixed use development called West End Lofts.
Some construction has already begun on the West End Lofts project, which promises to being historic high end loft residences to the upper floor of the buildings, and new commercial space, suitable for retail or restaurants on the ground floor. About 10,000 square feet of commercial space will be offered, and at the time of the building's sale it was said Spokane Boxing Gym would lease some of the space for a new gym there.
The lofts at West End Lofts will be fully customizable spaces, 8 in all, and all about 3,000 square feet each. The spaces will be shells allowing the person purchasing the loft to put whatever they want where ever they want. The lofts will be hip, historic spaces with the spaces stripped down to the bare brick walls, many still with original historic advertisements on them.
The West End Lofts project keeps the history of these under-utilized buildings alive, with new life while not destroying the building. Here is a look at what West End Lofts buildings will look like once completed...
Residential and commercial space is now available with the spaces listed with Prime Real Estate Group. For more information on West End Lofts, visit the project website at-
