Today the lot sits vacant, in a quiet and somewhat forgotten corner of Spokane. But if developers, Namva Chan & Johnathan Chan succeed with their plans, a new mixed use high rise will soon rise at 2020 W. Seventh. The planned building is right along I-90 on the Lower South Hill and will act as a gateway to Downtown Spokane.
The project has been named Vinegar Flats Public Market and will be seven story building. Baker Construction & Development will act as the contractor with design work done by Hurtado Hissong Design Group. Actual construction will likely start in the coming months with about 2 years of work to complete the project. Here is a look at what the Vinegar Flats Public Market building will likely look like-
Under the plan, the project's ground floor will be a food court with a variety of ethnic restaurants. Floors 2 thru 7 will be residential, with 52 total apartments. Some of the apartments will be available to the public for leasing. But, 21 apartments, all one bedroom will be set aside as housing for international exchange students. The apartment sizes and floor plans ranging from small micro size, up to 2,500 square feet.
Leasing rates have not yet been decided for either the apartments or the food court spaces. A underground parking garage is also to be included at the building. Keep watching for more when construction begins.
