Plans show details of Plantes Ferry-area development

Plans have been filed with the city of Spokane Valley for an 89-unit cottage development north of Plantes Ferry Park.

The development – Plantes Ferry Heights – will feature craftsman-designed cottages of about 600 to 800 square feet with attached garages on 8 acres of land, according to site plans.

An office and a recreation and storage facility would be provided for residents by converting an existing shop on the site. A 1,200-square-foot community center is proposed for meals and entertainment.

Daniel P. Melville of Spokane-based Upriver Consulting LLC is the project applicant on behalf of the Doris M. Dunham estate. Conrad Manfred of Kodiak General Contracting. is purchasing the land from the Dunham family.

The development design is based on the cottage-and-pocket-neighborhood concept made popular by architect Ross Chapin, according to the project application.

Chapin has designed several small-scale, close-knit cottage neighborhoods in Washington, Colorado and Indiana and Phoenix.
