Currently operated as a medical office building, a big change is about to come to the building at 44 W. 6th on the Lower South Hill. That building's current tenant, Providence Sacred Heart's medical resource center, is set to vacate the building sometime early next year. And, the new owner is planning to come in quickly after the current tenant leaves to begin an extensive renovation project.
The plans are to begin construction sometime around April of next year to update the building and convert to a residential use. Once complete the building will consist of 23 apartments with onsite parking, a roof deck and amenity space. Under the current plan the apartments will be a mixture of short-term Airbnb style rental units and long term market rate apartments.
The project is being done by developer Scott Issak working with Jordan Tampien of 4 Degrees Real Estate and Evan Verduin of Trek Architecture who is doing the design work for the project. This is the same team who collectively completed the mixed-use Parkview West building along W. 1st Ave. on the other side of Downtown just a few months ago.
