Downtown Spokane Tour, WebStyle
So maybe you were one of the lucky ones who got to check out the first annual Downtown Spokane Lifestyle Tour, which gave the public an opportunity to look at the booming downtown living options. But if you weren't able to make your way downtown here is your chance to experience the tour, webstyle. (Even I am shocked by the length of the list below.)
Wall Street Condominiums
153 S. Wall Street is a 14 story, 90-unit luxury condominium project built by Prium Homes in downtown Spokane. The units of each floor will be tailored for the individual buyer, with two floors being completely built-to-suit. Right next door, residents will find River Park Square, a collection of Spokane's high-end boutiques, department stores and restaurants. Also within walking distance is the beautiful Riverfront Park featuring nature walks, an IMAX Theater, and other attractions. 153 S. Wall Street radiates convenience and luxury. The project is slated for completion in the fall of 2007.
"Downtown Spokane's 170,000-square-foot former J.C. Penney building is going through dramatic changes. By summer 2006, it will be the upscale West 809 Building, with 21 loft condominiums, a second-floor fitness club and street-level shops. Architectural plans show the smallest condominium is 1,215 square feet and the largest is 4,620 square feet. Prices for the units will range from $550,000 to more than $1 million."
Deemed The Ultimate In Condo Living this is the new design for part of the former Ridpath building downtown at 501 West 1st Avenue. The website does feature a teaser rendering of what the new look will be and for better or worse it is a lot more modern then we have seen in Spokane.
Minnesota Oak Apartments
"The Minnesota Building was renovated circa 1994. The Oakley Building is in the final stages of renovation. We have completed seven live - work lofts. We are taking reservations for the purchase / sale of some of our lofts. We are planning on converting both the Minnesota and the Oakley buildings into a condominium. The lofts will be units in the condominium. The lofts will sell for $190,000 to $240,000. Most of the units will be in the $200,000 range."
"From reviving an urban core, to managing an apartment building, to helping a client envision what it takes to make their vision a reality, RenCorp offers a variety of services to achieve these goals. Our services are what we call the ABC's & D of RenCorp. Services include Architecture, Brokerage, Construction, and Development. Each service involves a group of RenCorp employees who work together as a team to deliver satisfaction to each client and each individual project."
"As the City of Spokane evolves, the future holds exciting opportunities to further connect key attributes in the formation of a cohesive, progressive, great western city. Herein lies the broadening vision for the downtown of Spokane…as seen through the eyes of Marshall Chesrown. Formerly known as the Summit Property, Chesrown’s vision began to unfold after the acquisition of the property last year. Directly connected to downtown by iconic bridges spanning the Spokane River, Kendall Yards presents a fresh new urban living experience that extends and animates Spokane’s unique sense of place."
Upper Falls Condos
"A development company headed by Spokane businessman Don Barbieri plans to build a multimillion-dollar, five-story luxury-condominium building on the north bank of the Spokane River, just west of the Flour Mill downtown. The company, Upper Falls LLC, expects to start work by fall on the 28-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, he says."
"The Havermale Park Project begins with the rehabilitation and preservation of six historic buildings. These are the Hale and Mearow Blocks and the National Hotel Building (all located along Riverside Avenue) as well as the Alger-Bristol Hotel Building, the south entrance to the Mearow Block, and the Bear Frame & Axle Garage (located along Sprague Avenue). Designed in an architecturally complimentary style, new construction will be built and located in the parking lot areas between the historic buildings."
Wells & Company
"Since the beginning, Wells and Company has been focused primarily on historic renovation projects that add to revitalization of downtown areas. In Spokane, Wells and Company has been renovating historic apartment buildings in and near downtown since 1983. We believe that people must live in Downtown Spokane in order for it to be a truly vibrant place. That is the reason we have been, since 1997, developing projects for condominiums and lofts in and near Downtown Spokane."
Davenport Tower & Residences
"Worthy Enterprises plans to build a 17- to 20-story hotel and residential tower at the southeast corner of First Avenue and Post Street. It will be called the Davenport Tower and Residences and is expected to be complete late next year. Worthy is planning to build it in a "traditional" style compatible with his historic hotel. The first 10 to 12 stories will contain up to 250 hotel rooms, with two levels of underground parking. The upper three to six floors will hold residences that will be either leased or sold."
"A small group of Spokane investors is buying an older, four-story building downtown and plans to redevelop it into about a dozen loft condominiums. The planned development is being referred to tentatively as the Blue Chip Lofts, since the building where the condos will be developed most recently had housed a company called Blue Chip Auto Body. It also previously had housed various car dealerships and, before that, a plant that made window and door sashes, Thosath says."
Jefferson Auto Lofts
"A development firm, Rencorp, is converting the former Pella Window warehouse at 152 S. Jefferson into office, retail and residential condominiums. That means all the space is being sold, rather than leased. The eight residential units, which range in size from 810 square feet to 2,500 square feet, already are spoken for, as is the second-floor office space. However, 5,200 square feet of retail space remains available on the first floor, for sale or lease."
"Located across from the Fox Theater, this project is in the heart of Davenport Arts District. Designed by the renowned firm of Olson Sundberg Kundig Allen Architects (OSKA), 1016 W. Railroad Avenue promises to be one of Spokane's most unique urban redevelopment projects. Fourteen condominiums each celebrating the original character of this historic warehouse building."
