Jacob’s Java has plans to convert an East Sprague Avenue building into a roasting facility and espresso machine-repair facility.
The building at 2502 E. Sprague Ave. will be the local coffee chain’s seventh location. The chain was the first drive-thru coffee shop in Spokane when it opened in 1992 and still has four locations in the city, as well as one each in Airway Heights and Spokane Valley.
The Sprague building was built in 1936 and renovated in 1972, according to county parcel data.
Construction is expected to begin this summer.
Spokane’s Uptic Studios is designing the project.
