Numerica Credit Union is planning to build a new branch in the Five Mile area.

The credit union recently submitted an environmental review to the Washington State Department of Ecology indicating it plans to build a 3,200-square-foot branch with an ATM drive-thru lane and 18 parking spaces at 6281 N. Maple St.

Four single-family homes will be removed and relocated to make way for the new branch.

Spokane-based Bernardo|Wills Architects is designing the new branch.

Numerica Credit Union, which is headquartered in Spokane Valley, has more than 165,000 members and holds more than $3.4 billion in assets.

Numerica operates 10 branches in the Spokane area and three in North Idaho, according to the credit union’s website.

Construction is slated to begin in October, according to the environmental review.

Whim Wine Bar relocates downtown

Whim Wine Bar has relocated to a new spot in River Park Square in downtown Spokane.

The wine bar moved to a space formerly occupied by Gaslamp in River Park Square’s third-level food court area, 808 W. Main Ave., Suite FC-1.

Upgrades to the new space include a resurfaced bar, new wall treatment and paint, refinished bench seating, installation of a wine rack, sinks, glasswasher and icemaker, according to a site plan filed with the city of Spokane.

Prior to the move, Whim Wine Bar was located on the shopping center’s main level since opening in 2019.

Volunteers of America Eastern Washington and Northern Idaho owns the site, Spokane County Assessor’s Office records show.

The project cost is an estimated $3.8 million, according to the application.

A contractor was not specified in the application.

CHAS Health is a nonprofit organization that serves more than 100,000 patients in the Inland Northwest. It operates a network of behavioral health, urgent care, dental and medical clinics throughout Eastern Washington and North Idaho.
