The Summit at Rockwood, high rise senior housing complex about to open on the South Hill
Visible for blocks around, The Summit tower at the South Hill campus of Rockwood Retirement Communities ( 2903 E. 25th Ave. ) will soon be complete full of life with dozens of apartments, common areas and even restaurants . It's 11 floors and will feature 64 apartments with an underground parking structure and built next door to it's lower in height counter part " The Ridge " an older 8 story senior housing complex with just shy of 100 apartments.
The Summit Tower recently opened it's ground floor ( which is mostly common areas ) and will begin opening the higher floors in ascending order as they are completed, which will occur over the next couple of months.
The new building, while not the tallest building in Spokane ( Downtown's Bank of America Tower holds that honor ) it still boasts great views sitting higher then the Downtown high rises on the South Hill . This also makes The Summit visible for a greater distance, in fact the tower can even be seen on the horizon along I-90 near the Broadway & Sprague Ave. exits.
Apartments in The Summit range from 900 square feet to 1,970 square feet with the top two floors considered penthouses with units there ranging from 1,050 square feet to 2,210 square feet. Residents of The Summit will also be able to take advantage of all the many amenities available on the Rockwood South Hill Campus.
While new senior housing complexes have been developed all over the region, The Summit is set apart as larger, more modern complex with something few of these project have, restaurant dining. The Summit Tower contains the following new restaurants-
Rocky's Café ( coffee shop )
Fireside Lounge ( bistro style dining )
Livingston's ( fine dining )
Residences of both housing towers and the rest of the South Hill Rockwood Retirement can use the restaurants under their dining plan.
Other features of The Summit at Rockwood include an art studio, event and meeting spaces, library, business center , fitness center, theater, salon / spa and more. Leasing work continues by Rockwood, but many the units are already pre-leased .
