The Dirt: A $22 million residential, retail development could be coming to downtown Spokane

A residential and commercial development could be coming to the former Umpqua Bank site in downtown Spokane.

Seattle-based architecture and design firm GGLO filed a preliminary application with the city to potentially build the six-story, 129,000-square-foot mixed-use development on two parcels of land at 206 and 214 W. Riverside Ave.

The 214 Riverside project – to which it’s referred in the application – will have 139 one- and two-bedroom units, 63 parking spaces and 1,250 square feet of lobby and amenity space. The construction cost is an estimated $22 million, according to documents filed with the city.

The 214 Riverside project will be required to undergo an environmental review with the Washington State Department of Ecology. A water study by the city of Spokane Water Department will also be required prior to construction to ensure design standards are met and how the development would affect the city’s water system, according to city documents.

Spokane Riverside Partners LLC, whose principal is Kevin Edwards, associate of Spokane-based commercial real estate company Hawkins Edwards Inc., purchased the two parcels of land on Riverside for $1.4 million in 2019, according to the Spokane County Assessor’s Office.

Man Shop to be tenant in Hazelwood Square

The Man Shop will be a new tenant in the proposed Hazelwood Square business park in Airway Heights.

Property owner Sadaqa Group LLC, of Spokane, applied for a permit with the city of Airway Heights to build out a retail space for The Man Shop at 10219 W. U.S. Highway 2, Suite B.

Construction began earlier this year on Hazelwood Square, a three-phase development near the southeast corner of U.S. 2 and Hazelwood Road.

The first phase calls for a single-story, 10,500-square-foot building with medical office and retail tenants. Subsequent phases include an additional 12,000-square-foot building and 48,000 square feet of storage, warehouse and manufacturing space on the south end of the 7-acre site, according to an environmental review for the project.

The Sadaqa Group purchased the site for more than $1 million in 2019, according to the assessor’s office.

Spokane-based Baker Construction & Development is the project contractor.

Hazelwood Square is slated to be complete in 2022.

Avocado Roll coming to North Side

A new restaurant is coming to the Heritage Square Business Office in north Spokane, according to a building permit issued by Spokane County.

Spokane-based JSC Contracting Services, the project contractor, filed the permit to renovate the nearly 1,000-square-foot space at 9423 N. Division St. into an Avocado Roll restaurant.

Renovations include new cabinets, sinks, flooring, shelving and a fresh coat of paint, according to the application.

Office space to be converted into salon

An existing office building will be transformed into a new salon near the intersection of Northwest Boulevard and Montgomery Avenue.

Jeremy and Anna Tanner filed an application to convert the existing 1,450-square-foot office space into Raven & Rose Salon at 1427 W. Montgomery Ave.

Plans call for demolishing the building’s existing interior and creating open space, in addition to installing two hair wash sinks and a dispense sink, according to the application.

Spokane-based JNW Concrete & Construction is the project contractor. Russell Page Architects, of Spokane, is designing the project. The project valuation is $25,000, according to the application.
