Post Falls project outlined

By The Spokesman-Review
 

A four-story condo building will be the first phase of a downtown-style development along the banks of the Spokane River in Post Falls.

Developer Harry Green said he plans to build 20 luxury condominium units. The building will be the first constructed in Post Falls Landing, a 33-acre former sawmill site.

Green said his architects and engineers are preparing a building permit, which he hopes to submit to the city of Post Falls in the near future. Crews are in the process of cleaning up and leveling the site.

Green declined to discuss a construction timeline, saying that will depend on the permitting process. He also declined to comment on the project’s value, or its financing.

Garco Construction will build the condos. Callison Architects of Seattle and Heylman Martin Architects are involved in their design.

Green said his office has already received a number of calls on the three-bedroom, two-bath condos. He plans to open a temporary sales office in Post Falls in the future.

Green bought 33 acres along the Spokane River in 2001. The site is targeted for a mixed-used development of housing, shops, offices, a hotel and marina. Post Falls leaders are hoping the development will become a “town center” for the sprawling community spread along Interstate 90.

Last year, Green received state approval for a 142-slip marina at Post Falls Landing. He said two companies are working on the marina’s engineering and design, so he can submit a final plan to the state Department of Lands for approval.
