The Dirt: Large delivery center planned for former Lowe’s site in north Spokane

The former site of a Lowe’s Home Improvement store on North Division Street could be transformed into a large warehouse and delivery center, according to a preliminary application filed with the city.

Seattle-based architecture firm MG2 filed an application to convert the former Lowe’s at 6902 N. Division St. into a 116,000-square-foot delivery center with a 9,600-square-foot office.

Site plans also show a parking lot for 117 associate parking spaces and 68 van/fleet parking spaces, in addition to five semi-truck bays south of the proposed delivery center.

The application also indicates a 4-acre parcel of land at 6720 N. Division St. will be used as an off-site parking lot.

The project valuation is estimated at $15 million, according to the application.

Spokane developer Harlan Douglass is the property owner.
