The Dirt: St. Luke’s to open new outpatient clinic in north Spokane; big apartment buildings proposed

A new outpatient clinic operated by St. Luke’s Rehabilitation Institute is scheduled to open Oct. 4 in north Spokane.

The site at 235 E. Rowan Ave. will provide therapies and occupational rehabilitation for adults and children. Clinic operations include rehabilitative care for injured workers, orthopedic injuries, neurological disorders and speech evaluation, among other services.

St. Luke’s used to have a north Spokane clinic in the Mayfair building, which was destroyed by a 2013 fire. The clinic moved to a temporary space on the Providence Holy Family Hospital campus, but the new 5,000-square-foot space allows for expanded services.

At least nine employees will be based at the location.

Overall, St. Luke’s has nine outpatient therapy clinics along with its rehabilitation hospital in Spokane.

Construction begins on new city hall

Spokane Valley’s city hall is going up at the southeast corner of Sprague Avenue and Dartmouth Road, within the old University City Mall site.

Meridian Construction, of Spokane Valley, started the $14 million project in May, a price tag that includes construction, taxes, land acquisition, design and furnishings.

The three-story structure and basement will have more than 65,000 square feet of space.

Developers plan big apartment projects

Developers have proposed two large apartment projects – one in Spokane and another in Airway Heights. The owners have sought tax-exempt revenue notes from the Washington state Housing Finance Commission to finance a portion of costs expected to be in the tens of millions of dollars.

Copper River Apartments would be a 240-unit, low-income multifamily complex, at 2911 Fort George Wright Drive.

In Airway Heights, the proposed Basalt Ridge Apartments also would be a 240-unit, low-income multifamily project on two adjacent parcels totaling 13 acres, with a southern border on the extension of West Sixth Avenue.

On a smaller scale, Northrock Island LLC, of Portland, plans to build a 12-unit apartment building south of Hartson Avenue in Spokane.

Duris Construction LLC is listed as contractor for the $1.5 million project, at 712 S. Scott St. near the Perry District. The two-bedroom apartments will have detached garage units, according to planning records.

Spokane County prosecutors demand raises, complain of unfair bargaining practices

new  The union representing Spokane County’s deputy prosecutors has launched a public pressure campaign in hopes of rebooting contract negotiations and obtaining wage increases. Mediated negotiations stalled in August when the union, Local 1553-PA, voted to reject the county’s “last, best and final offer,” which would have immediately raised wages for senior attorneys by 2.5 percent and wages for the two lower attorney classifications by 4.25 percent.
