Still for sale: downtown Masonic Temple and Huppin's, each for over $1 million

Present day: Looking west from the raised colonnade of the federal courthouse, the Riverside Avenue Historic District is obscured by mature trees. On the left side of the street are the Spokesman-Review Production Facility, the Chancery (originally the Western Union Life building), and the Cathedral of Our Lady of Lourdes. On the right side are the Spokane Club, the Chamber of Commerce building, the Masonic Temple, the North Coast Life building (formerly the Elks Lodge) and the Smith and Co. building. (Jesse Tinsley)

You can find all sorts of available commercial properties for sale in the downtown Spokane core.

Go to http://www.commercialmls.com/ and search just the 99201 zipcode and you'll find about 40 listings.

Two that caught our eye were already well-known: the downtown Masonic Temple at 1108  W. Riverside and the former Huppin's retail building, at 421 W. Main. Both buildings are part of early 20th century Spokane history.

The Huppins building is listed for $1.4 million, and is represented by NAI Black.

The historic Masonic Temple building -- a sprawling 109,000 square feet of space -- is listed for $1.75 million, which comes down to a measly $16 per square foot. It's also represented by brokers from NAI Black.

We'll keep track of the downtown real estate clicker and watch for sales of some of those 40 properties.
