Avista Development will unveil plans Tuesday for its Catalyst project in Spokane’s University District, including a construction timeline, design details and prospective tenants.
The company, a subsidiary of Avista Corp., has said little about the project since early plans emerged last March.
Those plans called for a six-story, 140,000-square-foot building filled with labs, offices, classrooms and study areas, suggesting a partnership with a higher education institution.
The building will be the first of two phases of the development and will occupy a 5.5-acre lot at the south landing of the $10.6 million U-District pedestrian bridge, which is under construction.
Leaders from Avista, Greater Spokane Incorporated and other groups have touted the Catalyst project as a major economic driver and addition to the area’s tech and science hub.
A news conference is planned for 10 a.m.
