The Dirt: McKinstry considers site on the West Plains for $5 million industrial warehouse project

Seattle-based McKinstry Co. is planning to build an industrial warehouse on the West Plains, according to a preliminary application filed with the city.

John Lang, director of design services for McKinstry, filed the application for the $5 million project, which calls for a 67,500-square-foot industrial warehouse on 5 acres of vacant land near Flint Road and 21st Avenue in Airway Heights.

Lang did not respond to a request for comment.

Construction is anticipated to begin in June, according to site plans.

California-based Katerra is the project architect.

McKinstry, a construction and energy-efficiency contractor, has an office on Spokane Falls Boulevard in the University District.

The company is also partnering with Avista Development Inc. to build the 150,000-square-foot Catalyst building in the U-District.

The structure will be the first in the state built out of cross-laminated timber manufactured by Katerra, which has a mass timber factory in Spokane Valley.

New convenience store planned for downtown

A new convenience store could be coming to the northeast corner of Post Street and Riverside Avenue in downtown Spokane.

Vik Singh filed an application with the city last week to renovate more than 2,800 square feet on the lower floor at 726 W. Riverside Ave. for a convenience store with a deli and kitchen area.

Global Credit Union sold the building to GVD Commercial Properties Inc. for $2 million in January, according to the Spokane County Assessor’s Office.

GVD Commercial Properties is a Spokane-based real estate development, investment and management company founded by Jerry Dicker in 1974.
