Former Econo Lodge near Airport being renovated into The James, a 140 unit apartment complex

Construction crews have already started in on a project that will soon convert a former hotel on Spokane's west side into a new place to live. Plans call for a complete remodel of the now closed Econo Lodge at 1503 S. Rustle into an apartment complex to be called " The James".

The James will feature 140 updated apartments, all studio units from 228 square feet up to 336 square feet. The remodel will upgrade the building and units where necessary and add kitchenettes for future tenants use. Rental rates aren't available just yet but we will continue to keep and eye on the project.

The building owner and general contractor is Fortify Holdings of Beaverton,OR. , who boasts on their website that they "refurbish old properties and build new communities from the ground up" , they also are currently actively renovating the former Days Inn on Third in Downtown Spokane into another new apartment community called The Imperial, we hope to make a separate post about that project in the near future.

Fortify Holdings apartments are managed and leased via Avenue 5 Residential ( ).
