The Matilda Building has been rising for the last several months at 1028 N. Hamilton , a project of some well known Spokanites . The building is a four story building with apartments above and commercial space below. We'll likely mention the apartments in separate post once they start to be occupied ( which will also be very soon ) . But, today we're starting to learn what businesses will open on the ground floor, facing Hamilton.
Forza Coffee Co.
A pretty well known chain of Coffee shops based in University Place,WA . The Forza location going into the Matilda Building will be the Spokane areas third location of the chain as they also have stores at 325 S. Sullivan in Spokane Valley and at the South Hill's Lincoln Heights Shopping Center.
This location will likely be just like the other Forza Coffee locations and when we asked about when it would open we we're told it was too early in the process to comment. So, we'll keep an eye on it for just when this new coffee shop might open for business.
Forza Coffee Co. locations do, of course have a full coffee menu but also a selection of panini sandwiches, breakfast sandwhiches , baked goods and even some small plates and pizzas.
Coming to Spokane from their original ( and only other... ) location in Bozeman,MT is a restaurant called Clark's Fork . Since they are also early in the process of opening we don't have very much info on them yet either , like an opening date , but should be getting that soon.
The Bozeman location, which will surely have the same menu as the new Spokane Clark's Fork features breakfast & lunch, with much of menu being sandwiches and the breakfast items being served all day. Some baked goods will also be available as are organic burgers , some specialty coffee drinks are available and at least with the Bozeman location a soup & salad bar are also offered.
Still more to come....
These are the only two sure things for businesses having leased spaces on the ground floor of the Matilda Building. But there is still a few more storefronts that are being actively marketed as we speak by the Byrd Real Estate Group ( 509-326-8080 or http://byrdrealestategroup.com ).
They likely won't be empty long as the building is in the busy Hamilton St. corridor only feet off of the campus at Gonzaga University. Also soon people will be living in the same building as these commercial spaces with over 100 bedrooms located in the upper three floors.
