Construction has started at the corner of Browne & Riverside ( 206 W. Riverside ) for a large new apartment building that is now one of the largest construction projects currently underway in the City Center. The site had last been utilized as a drive up bank building that closed a few years ago and that structure has already been demolished off of the lot with site work for the new building happening now.
The project will construct a six story building with 137 apartments that is comprised of a mix of studios, one and two-bedroom apartments. The apartments will be both workforce and market rate housing, a rep of the developer deChase Miksis, who kindly answered our request for info says that resident's will likely include urban transplants from larger metropolitan areas along with local resident's who desire to learn, work and play within a short distance of their home.
Included in the project will be 57 secured parking stalls plus bike parking and easy access to public transportation including Spokane Transit's planned new City Line service coming in 2022.
Additionally the building will include an outdoor urban amenity deck, amenity room and energy efficient systems. The developers are even targeting a LEED Gold Certification from the US Green Building Council. About 1500 square feet on the ground floor will be available as commercial space for businesses like coffee shops, restaurants ,etc..
Bouten Construction is the general contractor for the project with the new building planned to be complete in the Summer of 2022.
