Demolition and reconstruction work will begin six months after a parking garage near Providence Sacred Heart Medical Center was severely damaged by a fire, according to permits issued by the city.
The multistory parking garage at 675 S. McClellan St. is owned by Spokane South Medical LLC and attached to a 109-room, six-story Hampton Inn & Suites, also under construction. The hotel was not damaged by the fire.
Work to repair the fire damage is estimated at $575,000, according to city data.
Construction of the hotel and garage began in February 2016. Nearly three years later, in November 2018, fire crews arrived to find a well-established fire on the third floor of the structure, where furniture and finished materials for the hotel had caught fire.
Crews were evacuated at one point, and the ceiling partially collapsed.
In December, fire officials ended an investigation into the fire after being unable to determine if the building burned from arson because it was too damaged for investigators to enter safely.
