The Dirt: Spokane Falls Community College files for permit to build fine, applied arts building

Spokane Falls Community College’s new fine and applied arts building is one step closer to fruition, according to a building permit application filed with the city of Spokane last week.

The two-story, 57,000-square-foot building would be on the north side of campus at 3410 W. Fort George Wright Drive. The structure would house the community college’s fine arts and photography programs, which are currently in separate buildings.

The proposed building would include classrooms, computer labs, multiple studio spaces, a gallery and events center, and more, according to Spokane-based ALSC Architects, which is designing the project.

The building would provide flexibility for the college to accommodate changing program needs in the future, according to ALSC’s website.

The project valuation is $28.6 million, according to the application filed with the city. It is anticipated to be complete by September 2022, according to ALSC Architects.

New warehouse planned at Playfair Commerce Park

A new building will be going up at Playfair Commerce Park, according to a permit filed with the city.

Playfair Commerce Park developer L.B. Stone Properties Group LLC is planning to build a 51,175-square-foot warehouse – Playfair 14 – at 101 N. Haven St., according to the application.

The project contractor is Spokane Valley-based Divcon Inc. Architectural Ventures, of Spokane Valley, is designing the warehouse, according to the application.

The project valuation is $3.1 million, according to the application.

L.B. Stone Properties develops, owns and manages warehouse and industrial properties in Alaska, California, Hawaii, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, Oregon and Washington.

Playfair Commerce Park is a 58-acre site that houses several industrial buildings. Larry Stone, president of Spokane-based SCAFCO Corp. and L.B. Stone Properties, purchased the site from the city in 2010 and began developing it by adding roads, landscaping and infrastructure, in addition to buildings.

The property was the site of the Spokane Interstate Fair until 1930, when the fair association sold it to the city. The property later was home to the Playfair Race Course horse track and Ferris Field, where the Spokane Indians once played baseball.

Medical building gaining new tenant

Spokane-based Baker Construction and Development has filed an application with the city to remodel a space in a new medical office building, according to an application filed with the city.

The 5,900-square-foot remodeled space at 613 S. Washington St. will house a Vivacity clinic, according to the application.

It’s unclear if the Vivacity clinic is part of Vivacity Care Center operated by Premera Blue Cross and Seattle-based Vera Whole Health.

Seattle-based Ankrom Moisan Architects is designing the project, which has a valuation of $1 million, according to the application.

Baker Construction & Development built the two-story, 21,300-square-foot medical office building after demolishing a structure that used to house United Health Credit Services and other tenants.
