P.T. Associates completes move

Physical Therapy Associates has completed its move into new offices at 2507 E. 27th Ave. on Spokane’s South Hill.

The company has operated for more than 20 years at an office on South Grand Boulevard. The move, to a clinic with 9,200 square feet, nearly triples its room for therapy and health classes, said co-owner Kelly Risse.

The clinic has a staff of 20, including five physical therapists, trainers, assistants and a pool specialist who helps clients use the new treatment pool.

That pool includes two underwater treadmills. The clinic includes a studio for yoga and TRX classes.

The new office will operate five days a week, Risse said.

Mike Craven of Regulus Properties was the project manager. Matthew Collins of Uptick Studio was the project architect.

CdA schools hire architects

The Coeur d’Alene School District has tapped Architects West Inc. to develop redesign plans for Canfield Middle School and Sorensen Elementary School, part of the first phase of a bond-financed school renovation program for the district.

The selection will need to be confirmed by the school board next month.

The public will be invited to meetings early next year to weigh in on renovation plans before general contractors are selected.

The district also will select architects soon for renovation of Borah, Bryan and Winton elementary schools.

Church opens in permanent home

Real Life Ministries Spokane, a nondenominational church, will have its first services in its new location next Sunday.

The 800-member church bought the former Gold’s Gym, at 10101 N. Nevada St., for $1.9 million.

This will be the denomination’s first permanent church. Up to now it had been using Evergreen Elementary School in North Spokane.

The 20,000-square-foot building will be used for worship services, youth programs and community service.
