Liberty Lake is going full steam ahead into new business and development. Comcast is getting settled into their new call center in the Meadowwood Technology Park. Also many, many new homes and condos are also on the rise in the small city's subdivisions including two entirely new developments. Those are Trutina, a large 55 and over community north of I-90 off of Harvard Rd which will include some rentals and a swim club building which in under construction now and the Villages at Stonehill on the city's eastern side which will likely even include a new commercial development as early as 2018.
Also, underway is...
Christian Brothers Automotive -
A franchised auto repair company which is coming along rapidly off of Appleway by the Huntwood factory. We have previously written about this, simply search the business name in the box in the upper left.
Mckenzie Business Park's new building
Located along Mckenzie Ln. near I-90 and the new Telect factory is the second phase of building for the business park which leases small units to small business / manufacturing and warehousing companies. The new building is now under construction and is located directly across the street from the 1st building which is now almost entirely leased.
Legacy Villas Apartments
Under construction now along E. Country Vista Blvd. nearby the Yoke's grocery store is another new large apartment complex which will have 258 apartments and a clubhouse / leasing office once completed.
" Country Vista retail building "
We're still kind of waiting for more news on a purposed new commercial development planned for the corner of Country Vista & Whitman Ln. nearby the Liberty Lake Home Depot store. What we do know so far is it will be a 12,395 square foot building with about half of the building used for a restaurant but no confirmed restaurant named to be knowledge just yet. The other half will be a retail strip mall like center. It is being developed by a Seattle based business called Kunpeng,LLC
Cannabis & Glass
Given Liberty Lake's proximity to the Idaho border we figured it was only a matter of time till an I-502 marijuana business showed interest in building in the city. And while construction hasn't started yet a retailer with a location already open on Francis Ave in North Spokane has purchased a parcel on E. Appleway visible from I-90 for a future marijuana retail store, no word on when it might open and the project is still being discussed as it is controversial and will need approval.
Another big tenant at Meadowwood Technology Campus?
There is no name attached but we have uncovered some plans for another new office building in the campus off of Molter Rd. that Comcast and a couple other large employers call home. Given the nature of past development at Greenstone owned campus they usually don't build or consider moving forward before they have a company in mind for the space. Who it may be is completely unknown and to avoid scaring that company away I won't speculate but still I think we may have another big story at Meadowwood in the coming weeks or months.
Fujiyama Japanese Steakhouse & Bar coming to Liberty Lake
This may be the restaurant tenant of the new retail building I mentioned above or it might not as I'm still sorting out which lot which will be on . Either way this mini chain of hibachi grill style restaurant is confirmed to be planning a location in Liberty Lake nearby the Home Depot store. They are based out of Silverdale,Wa and are also currently developing a location down in Pullman.
Currently we have emailed the company for more info and we are just waiting for more info.
Some of these projects listed above will likely be put on this site in separate future posts so stay tuned!
