  Community Frameworks, a local non-profit affordable housing organization is embarking on a new development project about a mile away from Downtown Spokane. Called Sinto Commons, this new development will be a four story apartment building located at 509 W. Sinto.

Construction will begin soon at the site with removal of a large basalt rock formation and vertical construction is likely to commence in the Spring of 2021. A full project completion date is currently set for December 2021. According to Community Frameworks, Sinto Commons will create opportunities for 46 families and individuals to live affordably. And, of the building's apartments, 23 units are designated for residents who are currently experiencing homelessness.

Sinto Commons will feature 8 studios, 11 one-bedroom, 25 two bedroom and 3 three bedroom apartments, indoor common areas, outdoor play areas and on site parking. Walker Construction is the contractor and ZBA Architecture is completing the architectural design work.

Community Frameworks also owns six other properties in the Spokane region. In addition to Sinto Commons, Community Frameworks has one other development ( Highland Village in Airway Heights ) that will be completed in the Fall of 2021.
