Spokane Housing Authority renovating building on Nora Avenue

The Spokane Housing Authority is embarking on a $1.2 million renovation of a building it purchased last year on Nora Avenue, according to permits issued by the city.

The office renovation of the Nora building, 25 W. Nora Ave., will bring many changes to the 19,000-square-foot, two-story building and its basement, including new interior walls and an outdoor patio. The building is two blocks from SHA’s headquarters at 55 W. Mission Ave.

Spokane Housing Authority was created in 1972 by the city of Spokane to provide housing assistance to the region. The group serves Spokane, Lincoln, Pend Oreille, Stevens, Ferry and Whitman counties, and provides assistance to more than 5,500 low-income families through tenant-based rental assistance and SHA-managed apartment communities.

SHA purchased the building, which was called the Atlantic Professional Building, in July 2018 for $1.86 million.

The work was designed by ZBA Architecture, of Spokane.
