Something new is coming to Downtown Spokane's Fruci building at 218 N Bernard. The upper floors of the building have been empty after accounting firm Fruci & Associates moved to a building near the Spokane Arena a couple of years ago. But life is coming back to this space very soon.
Building permits are currently pending with the City of Spokane to remodel the building and convert floors 2-4 into a new use. These floors will become a total of 27 travel apartments of various sizes to be managed by the Spokane Valley based Stay Alfred. If all goes as planned the new apartments will be rentable on Stay Alfred's platform in time for Hoopfest this June.
This will be Stay Alfred's second property in Downtown Spokane in which they will offer their brand of apartment lodging. They also rent out a number of units within The M building aka the former Macy's building near River Park Square, in all however the company rents out thousands of urban apartments in 30+ cities.
The new rental units in the Fruci building will likely benefit from a close proximity to the Spokane Convention Center and the First Interstate Center for the Arts. The apartments will occupy the upper floors but the ground floor will remain as commercial space with current tenants being a Fedex Office and Spa Blue in the City.
Watch for construction work to begin in the near future and check http://stayalfred.com for available rentals and more information about their company.
