The Dirt: Work starts on hotel near Sacred Heart; North Side Denny’s planned

By Treva Lind Correspondent

Workers are grading a large lot near Providence Sacred Heart Medical Center as work begins on construction of a six-story Hampton Inn & Suites this spring.

Spokane South Medical LLC plans to build a 109-room hotel at 675 S. McClellan St. The 1.2-acre property is a vacant lot just north of the hospital. It is bordered by McClellan and Seventh Avenue.

Hospitality Builders Inc., of Rapid City, South Dakota, is the contractor for the $12.8 million project at about 126,000 square feet.

The midpriced hotel, expected to open in spring 2017, is designed to have a large meeting space, an indoor pool and spa, fitness center and a four-level parking garage. Hampton is part of the Hilton Worldwide group.

Spokane South Medical, with James Mulloy as managing member, has owned the property for more than 11 years and will retain hotel ownership, a news release said.

It will be managed by Hospitality Associates Inc., the Spokane Valley firm that manages 75 hotels in a dozen Western states.

Denny’s going in on Division

Construction is expected to start this spring to build a Denny’s restaurant at 3525 N. Division St.

The property currently sits vacant, after a small building was previously demolished. The $825,000 Denny’s project calls for a 4,400-square-foot eatery designed as a heritage prototype of the restaurant and typically seating up to about 150 people.

The project owner is Feast Properties LLC of Murrieta, California.

CVSD buys property for school

The Central Valley School District recently bought a property under a plan for future expansion and relocation of North Pines Middle School near its current address, 701 N. Pines Road. The $2.3 million real estate purchase fell under multiple steps and projects in a voter-approved 2015 construction bond.

Central Valley’s board approved purchasing the Broadway Square Apartments, 11910 E. Broadway Ave. The district plans to demolish the complex to make room for when a school replacement facility can be built to the west, farther off Pines Road, for student safety.

Funding for that school construction would fall under a future bond proposal.

Rehab housing to open

Spokane Treatment and Recovery Services has purchased a vacant 7,000-square-foot group living facility in Spokane Valley. Terms of the sale weren’t disclosed.

Spokane Treatment plans to renovate the building at 14819 E. Mission Ave. to offer transitional and rehabilitated living quarters.

Jody Johnson of Black Commercial was the selling agent involved in the transaction.
