The Dirt: Goodwill building large center in Post Falls

By Treva Lind (509) 459-5439

Goodwill Industries of the Inland Northwest is building a Post Falls facility for a thrift store and services. It will replace smaller quarters in that city.

Baker Construction & Development recently started the project at 4040 E. 16th Ave., at the corner of 16th and state Highway 41. With just under 24,000 square feet, the structure will hold space for retail, donation sorting and storage, and a Workforce and Family Services office. The services include a career center, job placement services and related support.

With an estimated project value of about $3 million, the building is expected to open next spring.

Goodwill currently leases a 6,000-square-foot Post Falls facility at 317 E. Seltice Way, and those operations will move to the new site. The nonprofit employs 14 people in Post Falls and expects to add another 10 to 15 positions with the new facility.

Separately in Spokane, Goodwill plans to open a new store in a former Albertsons set to be remodeled into a multitenant building, at 1617 W. Northwest Blvd.

Frontier to build on East Sprague site

Frontier Behavioral Health plans to build a two-story, $4.3 million office building on land it owns on East Sprague Avenue in Spokane.

Construction for the 15,000-square-foot structure is expected to start this fall and be completed in a year. The site is at the corner of North Lee Street. It will have a mix of office and clinical areas, as well as new space for relocation of Frontier’s Intensive Outpatient Program, now at 17 E. First Ave.

Frontier also has leased office space in two new locations to meet increasing client demand and expand its Wraparound Intensive Services program. One of the leased sites is in Spokane Valley, at 505 N. Argonne Road. The other space is at at 5901 N. Lidgerwood St., just north of Holy Family Hospital.

Horizon branch will be remodeled

Remodeling is expected to start next month for a downtown Spokane branch of Horizon Credit Union.

Baker Construction will renovate about 5,000 square feet of interior space, upgrade parking lots and improve the exterior. The Horizon branch, at 613 S. Washington St., is part of a multitenant building.
