New restaurant, coffee shop and car wash to kick off new development on the West Plains

It's been in the planning phase for months and signs marketing the project have been on the site for some time. But it looks like a new commercial development next to the Hilton Garden Inn, in the 9000 block of US 2 might now becoming to fruition. This is because building permits we're just recently filed with the City of Spokane to kick off actual construction.

The project would be built on a 4.5 acre parcel with patrons coming in from a newly built private access drive at the rear of the site along Hilton Dr. . In all there will be 5 new buildings built with some businesses already announced to be opening there.

Closest to US 2 will be a 6000 square foot Bush Car Wash, a 500 square foot Roasters Coffee drive up and a 3600 square foot Bruchi's location. Bush Car Wash and Roasters Coffee are both Tri-Cities based chains that are new to the Spokane area, Bruchi's however is locally based chain with a reputation of making delicious cheesesteaks and more since 1990. The businesses at the site are to be complete sometime in the Spring of 2020.

Additionally a 14000 square foot retail building and a 9000 square foot office building are included in the plans for the site but no tenants have been announced for them as of yet. There is also no building permits issued for these yet so they likely will be a future phase. Baker Construction is the projects general contractor, Knudson Engineering of Kennewick is leading the engineering work and Wave Design Group, also of Kennewick is doing the architectural design work for this development.
