Developer planning to build large apartment complex in Spokane Valley

UPDATED: Mon., Dec. 2, 2019

Developer Lanzce Douglass is planning to build a large apartment complex near Desmet Court and Indiana Avenue in Spokane Valley.

Douglass purchased more than 12 acres of land at 16609 E. Desmet Court and 1123 N. Flora Road for $3.6 million earlier this year, according to the Spokane County Assessor’s Office.

Plans are underway for a 304-unit apartment complex with 10 buildings, referred to as the Desmet-Quarry Apartments in an environmental review filed with the state in November.

The project would also include a clubhouse, pool, landscaping, parking garages and more than 300 surface parking spaces.

Spokane Valley-based Whipple Consulting Engineers is the project engineer.

Construction is expected to begin later this year, according to the environmental review, but building permits have yet to be filed with the city. A grading permit is currently under review by the city.

This article was updated Dec. 2 to reflect the project developer is Lanzce Douglass, not Harlan Douglass.
