Wall Street reopens Friday
Wed., Oct. 19, 2016
Wall Street is reopening on Friday after spending two summers under construction.
Newly constructed retailer Urban Outfitters, on the corner of Main Avenue and Wall Street, opens Thursday.
The city, the Downtown Spokane Partnership, River Park Square and Wheatland Bank will sponsor a reopening event beginning at 11:30 a.m. featuring live music and food trucks through 1:30 p.m.
There will be drawings for gift cards to downtown merchants.
Wall Street was closed from Spokane Falls Boulevard to Main Avenue last summer so crews could install a wastewater pipe that’s connected to the stormwater and wastewater overflow tanks the city has been installing.
This summer, construction of Urban Outfitters blocked part of the street and just recently the renovation of the former Macy’s store has begun.
“We want to thank the property and business owners along this block for their patience,” said Scott Simmons, director of Public Works and Utilities for the city of Spokane, “and we want to encourage people to come down and support them.”
