Spa Paradiso looks to open the end of April, taking new digs in Kendall Yard

Valentine's Day related business item. Spa Paradiso, last seen in the basement of the downtown Spokane Davenport Hotel, plans on reopening in a new location in Kendall Yards the end of April.

The full-service spa and salon has been closed since fall 2012. It originally hoped to open in a new commercial building in the Kendall Yards development on Dec. 1. Project managers however didn't finish the building that early.

The spa will take half of the 13,000-square foot two-story building due east of the Cedar Plaza building, which houses Central Food. The other tenant in the new building is The Inlander newspaper.

The building will be the second commercial building at Kendall Yards, a Greenstone multiuse development west of the Monroe Street Bridge and north of the river.

Co-owner Larry Schoonover said he'll start booking appointments in early April. The company will have around 35 employees.

They will lease about half of a 13,000-square-foot, two-story building due west of the new Cedar Plaza Building. A second unidentified tenant will take the other half of the space.

The new commercial building is part of the 78-acre Kendall Yards development, a project of Greenstone Corp. So far more than 140 residential units have been sold or are under construction

Out of the basement into Kendall Yards: Spa Paradiso grabs a river view

Spa Paradiso, the downtown beauty care business in the Davenport Hotel, will move into new space in the Kendall Yards development, owners Jan and Larry Schoonover said.

The natural-care and beauty spa opened its doors in the 1990s in the basement of the former Bank Of American building downtown. It moved to the lower level of the Davenport in 2002.

The move will allow their business to expand and take advantage of views of the Spokane River, said Larry Schoonover. “We really think the location in Kendall Yards is special. The commercial and residential mix there, in the heart of the city, is really unique,” said Larry Schoonover.

The business has 35 employees and will likely add more after the relocation, he said.

The Schoonovers will close their current spa July 22 and open on Dec. 1.

They will lease about half of a 13,000-square-foot, two-story building due west of the new Cedar Plaza Building. A second unidentified tenant will take the other half of the space.

The new commercial building is part of the 78-acre Kendall Yards development, a project of Greenstone Corp. So far more than 60 residential units have been sold or are in construction.

Plans include for at least five more commercial properties to be developed along the river toward the Monroe Street Bridge, including a grocery store.

Connected to the spa building will be another commercial building also measuring 13,000-square-feet. That adjoining two-level building will be built by Greenstone but owned by the Pacific Northwest Inlander. It plans to move into the building in the fall.
