<Downtown Spokane and area Construction Projects>

Eastern Washington International Housing ( Downtown Spokane )

This plan has gone through a few versions, starting as a high rise with a public market space. But, permits have now been issued for the facility with will be at 2020 W. 7th, just south of I-90. 

The permit indicates it is now to be a 5 story mixed use building. In the original version I believe it was intended to provide housing for International students, we'll be looking into where the projects stands in the coming weeks.


Uprise Brewery ( Kendall Yards / Downtown Spokane )

Demolition crews have been busy at work removing a former warehouse, that I believe was once a bakery from the site at 617 N. Ash St. just north of Kendall Yards. Although I don't know that full plan just yet permits are now pending to replace the building with a 6500 square foot building to house a business called Uprise Brewery.

Plans call for a brewery / restaurant and "boarding house".


206 W. Riverside ( Downtown Spokane )

Sitting at the corner of Riverside and Browne in Downtown Spokane is under-utilized lot with part of a former drive up Sterling Savings Bank ( now closed ) and some parking that I believe is all monthly permit spaces.

But, that will be changing soon as permits for both the building are site grading to build a new mixed use building on the site. Plans are calling for a 5 story building with parking below, it would include ground floor commercial space and 138 apartments.



Former Les Schwab at Third & Browne ( Downtown Spokane )

Construction is coming to the former Les Schwab tire shop at the corner of Third & Browne. The east facing section will be occupied by a new convenience store and a leasable retail space will be in the north facing half.


Former Days Inn Downtown , now The Imperial? ( Downtown Spokane )

After a bankruptcy the presently closed Days Inn on Third in Downtown Spokane now has a new owner. One, who I'm told has a history of rehab projects. From our early information the new owners plan to convert the motel into 90+ studio apartments, with a full renovation project.


Fruchi Building ( Downtown Spokane )

Dry Fly Downtown ( Downtown Spokane )

Dry Fly Distilling has been a part of the Spokane business community for awhile. And, as they outgrow their current facility on E. Trent they are renovating the part of former Spokesman Review printing facility at Monroe and Riverside into a large new production facility and tasting space. Got to admit, seeing that huge Dry Fly sign on the side of this building is pretty cool. 


Boxcar Apartments ( Spokane / University District / Sprague Union )

A Portland based developer has proposed a new seven story apartment building at 15 N. Grant by the south landing of the new University District Gateway Bridge. Construction has started and plans call for a $18 million project with 136 apartments, covered parking structure and a cafe on the ground floor.


Papillion Towers ( Spokane / North Bank )

Selkirk Development is still working on designing / financing these two new high rises planned on N. Howard St. near the Spokane Arena. Not sure when construction will actually start but interestingly the existing building on the site ( which will stay as part of the project ) will soon house a new restaurant from Chef Ian Wingate called Outsider.


The Podium ( Spokane / North Bank )

Once known as the Sportsplex, The podium is the absolutely massive new multi-sport facility rising just east of the Spokane Arena. The 135,000 square foot center is to open later this year with 16 volleyball courts, 9 basketball courts and 21 wrestling mats, all trying to attract new competitions to Spokane.It will also have a 200m banked track and seating for 4000. 


The Falls Tower ( Spokane / North Bank )

No construction has started and the plan has changed a couple of times but we're still watching for news on The Falls Tower project which stands to potentially be a huge 22 story high rise just south of Spokane Arena near Riverfront Park. It will contain residential and commercial components as well as possibly a hotel?


Columbia / James Black Building multi-family renovation ( Downtown Spokane )

Big renovations are planned for the building at the corner of Howard & 1st in Downtown Spokane. Most recently the building's upper floors we're offices, including the HQ for NAI Black commercial real estate. But the offices have already relocated and the building will be converted to a primarily multi family use.

Under the current plan, the upper floors will be converted to 50 apartments. The ground floor would remain commercial but a restaurant on the ground floor, The Wave, would also be remodeled during the project.


120 N. Wall building ( Downtown Spokane )

Renovations are ongoing on the building at 120 N. Wall in Downtown Spokane. Plans call for revamping the ground floor space, but keeping it as a commercial space. The upper floors would be converted to apartments, 21 in all.



The 508 West Building ( Downtown Spokane / Lower South Hill )

New tenants are filling the once underutilized building and a new Seattle based Italian restaurant will fill the ground floor where a Olive Garden restaurant formerly operated.


Kendall Yards projects

Several projects are going up in Kendall Yards, just north of Downtown Spokane. A new mixed-use building is rising on Nettleton on the west side of the development that will house a brick & mortar location of Crepe Cafe Sisters restaurant.

In the main Kendall Yards Business District two more mixed-used buildings are currently under construction.

The owners of Gamers Haven in Spokane Valley plan to move their store to the building, and open a restaurant and bar called Mythos in the space. Additionally surplus space on the second floor will be leased out, and I'm told a barber and possibly a tattoo shop will open there.


Former Domino's Pizza / C-store on Third

Demolition recently happened to two buildings on Third, south of The Steam Plant leading to a few emails asking about the possibility of it the being re-developed as a high rise. However the plans call for Avista Utilites to replace the site was a large new substation that will provide an upgraded power system to Downtown and a part of the South Hill.



<South Hill Construction Projects>

Radio Park Apartments ( South Hill )

Permits are pending for a large new apartment development that will be unique for our area. The apartments are the first phase of development on the " KXLY site " across S. Regal from the South Hill Target store. It will be built in two phases, each having 147 apartments on multiple floors wrapped around a central parking structure, a common development technique used in Texas' metro areas.

A commercial area will likely include shops and restaurants in front of the new apartments but that will come in a future portion of the development that doesn't have a timeline. 



Washington Trust / Thomas Hammer on the South Hill

Work is ongoing on a new building on S. Grand Blvd by the Manito Shopping Center. Washington Trust Bank opened a new branch on the lot not long ago and is now constructing a second building to the south of their main bank.

Construction will also include a huge parking lot to the south of the Sportsman's Warehouse store for parking of Amazon's fleet and employees.



Division & Francis

Interestingly the dated office buildings that had been on the site have since been moved and are actually being placed on a lot of their own on E. Nora , east of Pines. Glad they kept them.

A " neighborhood " commercial building opened by Orchard Park last year and consists of Hello Sugar Donut Shop and Sweet Annie's Ice Cream. Rumor has it that building will be expanded at some point for a pizza business and a day care.

In the area that will eventually be the actual Town Square development along Harvard Rd construction has started for a " welcome center " for sales / leasing, a restaurant that I cannot mention but was formerly a food truck and a beauty salon. A mead business and possibly a winery will also build on land to the north of this soon.

A new small strip mall next to KFC in Airway Heights, many spaces that will be open for new businesses to occupy and a dentists office named Dr C's to occupy the lead space.

Spokane International Airport remodel ( West Plains )

Big plans are being developed to possibly improve the Spokane International Airport. Plans call for a few new gates and a centralized baggage claim, and I've heard the work will also finally connect the C Concourse to the main terminal area. This one is probably one of the more up in the air projects right now however sadly.


New development on Hilton Dr, near Airway Heights ( Airway Heights / West Plains )

The first phase of a new commercial development off of Hilton Dr., east of Flint Rd. and next door to the Hilton Garden Inn hotel. Bruchi's restaurant is now open, a Roasters Coffee drive up is opening soon next to it and Mister Car Wash is also opening in the coming weeks. 

Behind the under construction phase will eventually be at least one strip mall and possibly office space, exact plans for that portion of the project are still in the planning phase.

McFarlane Rd. , just east of Exotic Metals Forming on the South side of Airway Heights. The developer of this project has done work in larger metropolitan markets and says the building could house upwards of 12 tenants.


Industrial projects north of Spokane International Airport ( Airway Heights / West Plains )

Recently, Triumph which operates one the largest industrial plants in the area ( at US 2 and Flint Rd ) announced they plan to close their plant in 2022. But the land directly south of their facility is about to take off with new facilities from other companies! These will be:

McKinistry, planning a 67,500 square foot warehouse

Puget Sound Pipe, planning a 19,600 square foot warehouse / office space

Selkirk Pharma, planning a 147,600 square foot manufacturing facility with office space.

Also, given the current market I personally don't see the Triumph facility staying vacant for too long. Although it may get divided up? I'm planning to keep an eye on that too.
