Last week a groundbreaking ceremony was held for a new project that will add more housing to Spokane and forever change a part of N. Monroe St. . That project is called Millennium Monroe and will be a project of local developer Millennium Northwest,LLC. , that also is planning a similar project in the Garland District, which will be included in a post of its own soon on this site.
Next door at 2020 N. Monroe plans call for converting the 30,000 Sq. Ft building into new commercial and warehouse space. A portion of this building will be occupied by Indaba Coffee, who intends to open a coffee shop and new headquarters / roasting operations there. Construction on this section of the project is currently planned to begin construction around the summer of 2023. The developers tell me they are already in negations with a number of businesses to potentially lease the remaining commercial spaces.
Baker Construction & Development will be the general contractor at Millennium Monroe, with Bernardo Wills Architects preforming the architectural design work.
