The Dirt: More improvements in store at Lincoln Heights

More facelift work this summer will spruce up the Lincoln Heights Shopping Center.

Vandervert Construction, which built the Trader Joe’s store and recently upgraded a section to the east, now will do additional exterior improvements for the retail center at 2901 E. 29th Ave. The work starts just past a Rite Aid outlet and extends west to include the front of a Jo-Ann Fabric and Craft store.

The upgrade to this portion of the south-facing facade has an estimated project value of $750,000. Among the center’s many retail tenants are a Petco, Forza Coffee and 2nd Look Books.

The facade upgrade will match the center’s new look that started with the Trader Joe’s construction.

Pride Prep charter upgrade underway

Vandervert also recently started construction at a new Spokane public charter school called Pride Prep, at 811 E. Sprague Ave.

The upgrade to the 15,000-square-foot space includes about $95,000 in improvements for minimal new wall construction, finishes and other interior work.

The school opens this fall for grades six through 12. Instruction includes seven years of a foreign language, extra math and science, a nine-hour school day and an extended school year.

Vintage V-Twin buys Francis Avenue site

Vintage V-Twin, a Spokane motorcycle shop, has purchased a property at 1635 E. Francis Ave. where the company will move.

Bill and Sue Tillie, owners of Vintage V-Twin, will relocate from 7218 E. Market St. The new location is on a portion of property sold by Ken and Rose Harvey, owners of Harvey’s Auto Sales. The Harveys’ used car lot remains open nearby at 1607 E. Houston Ave.

Vintage V-Twin will operate motorcycle sales and service from the 4,800-square-foot building on Francis. The Spokane County Assessor’s Office listed the property sale at $285,000.
