A large red crane is now up and changes are coming to the building formerly known as QualMed Plaza. The building has sat the corner of Sixth & Stevens on the Lower South Hill for decades, filled with an array of medical offices. But the offices that remain are working on their own new spaces to move to as construction crews have already started the process of converting the building into a new option for urban living in Downtown Spokane.
Brumback Construction of Spokane is both the contractor and developer on the project that will re-develop the ten story structure in the 508 West, a play on it's address at 508 W. Sixth. The plan calls for converting the main building and it's attached parking garage into apartments, 117 new units in all. The apartments will be available as upscale studio, one and two bedroom units. When we reached out they said they don't have a set rental rate just yet but will likely have a " wide range of pricing ".
The building will also feature a rooftop terrace and amazing views of Downtown Spokane, which is within walking distance of the development. Also, the ground floor will retain it's commercial use with a pharmacy, hair salon and coffee shop.
They indicate the first of the apartments will be able for move in this Fall, with more phases to be released shortly after. Brumback is already gathering an interest list on their website, which also includes some awesome renderings of what the finished project will look like.
