The Dirt: Riverview Retirement Community adding more housing for memory care residents

February 17, 2019

Riverview Retirement Community is building additional housing for memory care residents.

Spokane-based Bouten Construction will build three, one-story duplexes, which will each be more than 3,700 square feet in size. The duplexes, proposed as part of an expansion to the existing retirement center, will house up to 36 memory care residents in 18 double-occupancy rooms, according to plans filed with the city of Spokane.

An existing residential building will be demolished to make way for the new development on an acre of land at 2315 E. Upriver Drive. Plans also call for a new driveway, landscaping and parking.

The project will cost from $500,000 to $800,000, according to predevelopment documents filed with the city.

Riverview Retirement Community was founded in 1959 by area Lutheran congregations and is affiliated with the Evangelical Lutheran Church. It provides health care, memory care and independent- and assisted-living services on its 32-acre campus.

Four-building apartment complex planned in Valley

Dennis Crapo of Diamond Rock Construction has filed plans to build a multifamily apartment complex in Spokane Valley.

The proposed $1.2 million project at 11813 E. Broadway Ave. will contain four, three-story buildings with a clubhouse and a pool. The total project size is more than 143,000 square feet, according to permits filed with the city.

Crapo purchased the more-than-4-acre parcel of land last year for $800,000.

The project’s architect is Spokane-based Bernardo|Willis Architects.
