East Sprague Avenue has seen its fortunes rise and fall. Now it’s turning a corner. For real.

If one building describes East Sprague Avenue, it’s the Pansie garage.

Sonnelands say developer mistakenly tried to rezone South Hill land

Penni Swartzwelder and 160 other property owners in Spokane’s Lincoln Heights neighborhood were half-expecting the notice that recently landed in their mailboxes. It informed them that a developer wanted to rezone 30 acres of choice property in the heart of the South Hill for apartments and commercial businesses. The land – south of 29th Avenue between Pittsburg Street and Southeast Boulevard – is owned by Dr. John Sonneland and his wife, Holly Sonneland. Right now, it’s mostly undeveloped and lightly forested; the Sonnelands have acquired the 30 acres throughout several decades, and the only occupied residence on it is their home.
