The Dirt: Numerica opens new Spokane Valley branch

Numerica opens new Valley branch

Numerica Credit Union has opened a Spokane Valley branch at 4909 E. Sprague Ave., built with several new design features. The space has a more-open floor plan than other branches and includes a tech bar where customers can charge their cellphones or use iPads.

Contractor Leone & Keeble of Spokane constructed the 3,700-square-foot building for about $2.4 million to replace the credit union’s branch on Havana Street. Numerica held a grand opening Wednesday for the new location, one of nine branches in the Spokane area.

The site also has energy-efficient lighting, glass sliding panels and kid-friendly game stations. A glass wall opens from the main lobby onto a patio for outdoor gatherings and events. The branch’s 10 employees are cross-trained to handle any customer request from account deposits to loan transactions.

Numerica has more than 100,000 members in Eastern and Central Washington and North Idaho and 17 branches overall. The credit union has listed for sale its property at 301 N. Havana.

Club at Rock Creek releasing properties

The Club at Rock Creek near Lake Coeur d’Alene is releasing its first residential properties for purchase in a private golf club community. Sales will begin with cabins and townhomes as part of 321 total residential units.

The development also will include single-family homes in a 1,100-acre residential community, neighboring an additional 33 lake-access home sites at Rock Creek Ridge at Sunup Bay, another private community under the same ownership.

Real estate agent Lauren Adair is leading Club at Rock Creek’s sales division. Phase 1, under construction, has six townhomes and 16 cabins, its website says.

The Tom Weiskopf-designed, 7,300-yard par 72 golf course overlooks the lake. Formerly called Rock Creek Golf Club Idaho, it’s preparing for a third season of invitation-only play. The primary owner of both the golf course and Rock Creek Ridge at Sunup Bay is Fidelity National Timber Resources Inc., a real estate subsidiary of Fidelity National Financial Inc. chaired by financier William Foley II.
