Caterers to build office building

Ahmad and Fery Haghighi, owners of Fery’s Catering, are building a commercial office building at 5608 S. Regal St. They plan on tenants moving in by the end of the year.

Estimated to cost $1.5 million, the 7,200-square -foot building will cater to retail or office clients.

No tenant leases have been signed, said Guy Byrd, of Cornerstone Property Advisors, who’s representing the owners.

Architects for the project are Clark Architects PS, with Dave Shockley. The general contractor is Spokane-based Kop Construction.

The Haghighis will continue operating their catering business near downtown, Fery Haghighi said.

They asked architect Steve Clark to design the building and his first reaction was to refuse, he said. “The one thing I didn’t want was to work on a strip-mall commercial design.”

But they convinced him to tackle the project with a look toward sleek and contemporary design, Clark said.

The result will be a building relying mostly on glass and steel and accents of burnt-wood soffits, Clark said.

Yoga salon opens in November

The Union, a new downtown Spokane yoga salon, will open in November at 121 W. Pacific Ave., Suite 400.

Owners Nick Murto and Tyler Lafferty, who also operate digital media firms 14Four and Seven2, are taking 2,100 square feet in Suite 400 of the building.

They describe The Union as traditional yoga set to hip-hop music. The business will also feature spin classes and be open seven days a week.

Vic Overholser, of SDS Realty, helped broker the business lease.
