Currently the tallest building in Spokane is the Bank of America Financial Center at 288 feet, but this building would have 354 feet and 31 floors.
So, where will Riverside Station be built?
It's purposed for the vacant lot on the northwest side of the N. Division / MLK Way intersection in the University District section of Downtown. The address is listed as 100 N. Division
When will Riverside Station be built? as per the plans recently filed with the City of Spokane construction will begin this fall. However it is important to note this project is still in the planning phase and developments this large rarely run on schedule.
Here is a breakdown of what is purposed in this new high rise-
Ground floor- Some parking, retail / restaurant lease space and some building support services
Floors 2-7- Parking garage ( 400 spaces )
Floor 8- Mechanical support area
Floors 9-18 Apartments ( number of apartments doesn't look to be set just yet )
Floors 19-22 Office space
Floors 23-30 Condo apartments
Floor 31 Condo apartments and mechanical
We've only recently received these details so we don't have a building rendering or anything along those lines yet. The project's developer is listed under the name Alvco,LLC which appears to be connected to local real estate investor Vincent & Janet Dressel. We'll be watching / checking for more in the coming weeks...
This is actually 1 of 3 purposed high rises in Downtown Spokane at this point in time. But, to date no construction has happened on any of the sites. The Falls Tower is planned near the Spokane Arena, and the 1400 Tower is planned to the west of Downtown along the Spokane River. There has also been on going rumblings of another high rise planned just a couple of blocks north of the Riverside Station proposal on the site of the abandoned auto shop at Division and Spokane Falls Blvd.
What do you think?
Would this project benefit Downtown? What else do you want to see come to Downtown Spokane?
Also, on a side note here is an interesting read on how everyone should be able to live downtown, something I support immensely. It's off of the Spokane Rising blog, which in itself is a site worth checking out-
