Quickie on new downtown living developments:
"A development company headed by Spokane businessman Don Barbieri plans to build a five-story luxury-condominium building on the north bank of the Spokane River, just west of the Flour Mill. The company, Upper Falls LLC, expects to start work by fall on the 32-unit, 108,000-square-foot structure, to be called Upper Falls Condominiums. The living units, all of which will have views of the river, Riverfront Park, and Downtown, are expected to be completed by summer 2006.

Rencorp is renovating two former commercial buildings on the west side of Downtown for residential, office and business use. In the former Luminaria building, 154 S. Madison St., two new businesses are moving in and apartments are being planned for the second floor. Empyrean coffee shop opened on the first floor, offering coffee drinks, pastries and lunch items. The second tenant is Finesse Productions and Design, owned by sisters Karen Chittenden and Terrie Vent. The principal part of their business is printing customized items for expectant parents. The second floor will be converted into five, 800-square-foot loft-style apartments.

In the old Pella Windows building at 154 S. Jefferson St., eight residential condominium units – all of which are pre-sold – are under construction. The Better Business Bureau is moving in on the second floor, and the main floor is available for retail lease." [Downtown Dialogues Newsletter]
