The former Wonder Bread building at 821 W. Mallon has been undergoing a dramatic renovation and expansion for the last several months. But the building, which is now known as Wonder Spokane, will be wrapping up their project this Summer bringing new office space along with an artesian market space. The market will be called Wonder Market and will be a 12,000 square foot space for local retail and food vendors, we'll likely have more on that coming soon.
But, first the office space as it was announced just today that the owners have partnered with commercial real estate advisor JLL and NAI Black to begin marketing and leasing that space. They say the arrival of this office space will being some relief to the tight market for large scale office space locally. And, what's exciting about the large office space is they even hope the space might be used by a tenant from Seattle, Portland, San Fransisco or similar seeking to expand into the a more affordable growing market like Spokane.
Wonder Spokane will feature three full stories and a large basement for office users, totally 100,000 square feet of new space geared towards growing creative companies. The space will offer high ceilings, abundant natural light and will be unique as it's a historic over 100 year old building. Plentiful parking will be provided on site and the building will be topped by a rooftop deck featuring views of Riverfront Park and Downtown Spokane.
