Spa Paradiso to move to Kendall Yards

Spa Paradiso, the downtown beauty care business in the Davenport Hotel, will move into new space in the Kendall Yards development, owners Jan and Larry Schoonover said. The spa opened its doors in the 1990s in the basement of the former Bank of American building downtown. It moved to the lower level of the Davenport in 2002. The move will allow their business to expand and take advantage of views of the Spokane River, said Larry Schoonover. “We really think the location in Kendall Yards is special. The commercial and residential mix there, in the heart of the city, is really unique,” Schoonover said. The business has 35 employees and will likely add more after the relocation, he said. The Schoonovers will close their current spa July 22 and open on Dec. 1 in Kendall Yards. They will lease about half of a 13,000-square-foot, two-story building west of the new Cedar Plaza Building. A second unidentified tenant will take the other half of the space. The new commercial building is part of the 78-acre Kendall Yards development, a project of Greenstone Corp. So far more than 60 residential units have been sold or are under construction. Plans call for at least five more commercial properties to be developed along the river toward the Monroe Street Bridge, including a grocery store. Connected to the spa building will be another commercial building also measuring 13,000 square feet. That adjoining two-level building will be built by Greenstone but owned by the Pacific Northwest Inlander. It plans to move into the building in the fall.
