The Cooper George building at 707 W. 5th has been various types of senior citizen housing / assisted living for many years now. But, with the boom of people wanting to rent in and around Downtown Spokane it only makes sense that now would be the time to convert the 60+ year old structure back to it's original use, apartments for anyone.
For the past few months crews from Spokane based Baker Construction and others have been hard at work on the building. And, now we are able to report that the newly created apartments will should be ready to be moved into as soon as late February. In all the Cooper George will now be home to 144 apartments with studio, 1 and 2 bedroom units available.
The building has been completely updated providing modern apartments with upscale materials and finishes. But, it's main selling point will no doubt be the location as it's just a short couple of blocks into Downtown Spokane and has abundant public transit all around great for Downtown workers or those that just want to be close to all the events/ shopping / dining and more. The views are awesome too with units on the top floor ( 12th floor ) being able to overlook all of Downtown and all the way up to Mt. Spokane.
Apartments at the Cooper George building will rent from $1080-$1835 per month and the rent includes all utilities. Residents will also have access to a host of amenities including a roof top deck and a café space, etc. in process of coming to the completed building. More about what is all included is on their website.
