In West Spokane’s Downtown District, this construction project was a remodel of an existing warehouse structure into 50 units of affordable workforce housing with provisions made to retain the historical building renovation standards. Construction materials and details included seismic reinforcement of footings, multiple shear walls, a combination of wood and steel stud framing, upgraded floor finishes and solid surface countertops. The warehouse style steel windows were upgraded with insulated glazing panes and the existing wood framed windows were replaced with maintenance friendly aluminum clad wood units. This historic building now has energy-efficient boilers and cooling systems, as well as “energy star” rated appliances selected to help keep operating costs down for both owner and tenant. Amenities include an exercise room, reading room, and limited off-street parking.
