Innovative $1.5 million commercial project underway at 55th and Regal

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," he told them.

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.
