New development is getting underway in the Kendall Yards Business District, along W. Summit Pkwy and north of Downtown Spokane. Two new mixed use buildings are planned along the north side of Summit in-between the My Fresh Basket grocery store and the existing buildings of Kendall Yards.
Baker Construction & Development, Inc. of Spokane will be the general contractor for both buildings, the first of which is currently being called West of Jefferson and would be directly next to the existing business district buildings. This building will be a five story structure with commercial on the ground floor and apartments on the upper floors.
The plans for the West of Jefferson building call for four retail spaces, a restaurant space on the lower level and a total of 41 apartments above. The residential space will be made up of eight studios, thirteen one-bedroom and twenty two-bedroom units with a completion date for the entire building being planned by the end of 2021.
Just east of this new building will soon be another new building. This will be a unique looking " Flatiron " style building, construction will start later and given this there is not a completion date just yet for the Flatiron building. However once constructed it will offer ground floor retail space and 8 units of residential above, each of the residential units will have a loft mezzanine.
