Here at Inland Northwest Business Watch we don't cover every multi-family construction project in the area. There simply are too many as there is always at least a handful under construction, which is great as they are needed. But we do take note of apartment projects with commercial components, buildings where the use is being changed and in the case of this article a project in a unique location that will probably have more than a few people asking " Hey, I wonder what's going in there? "
Site work commenced just a couple of weeks ago at 12608 E. Nora in Spokane Valley for a new yet to be named apartment building. In this area E. Nora is a frontage road that faces I-90 from Pines Rd east to where it meets Mamer Rd. adjacent to the Evergreen Commerce Park. This means the site can be seen directly by thousands of commuters daily but will also offer easy access for the future tenants to get to work, school, etc.
Vertical construction is to start at the site this spring after site work is completed. Developer Skyline Homes,LLC plans the building to be a 4-story building with 32 units that will be a mix of 1- and 2-bedroom units. The new apartments will be ready for occupancy in early 2024, permits show the project is valued at $5 million and Skyline Homes will also act as the general contractor with architectural work being done by Mercier Architecture & Planning.
