City permits issued for residential tower on west edge of downtown

October 13, 2018

A seven-story residential tower will be built along First Avenue on the western fringe of downtown Spokane, according to permits issued by the city.

When complete, which is anticipated next summer, the upper six levels will have 51 apartment units and a fitness room. The first floor will be built as unfinished shell for a commercial tenant and will include a residential lobby.

In all, the building at 1309 W. First Ave. will have nearly 53,000 square feet. It’s valued at $9.5 million in city documents.

The project is being developed by two sets of brothers: Jordan and Joel Tampien, co-owners of 4 Degrees Real Estate, and Matt and Ryan Goodwin.

Matt Goodwin and Jordan Tampien are co-owners of the Boiler Room on Spokane’s North Side and Backyard Public House in the West Central neighborhood. Goodwin also co-owns Press, Fast Eddie’s Bar and Grill, Remedy and the Volstead Act.

The project’s general contractor is T.W. Clark Construction, of Spokane Valley. Trek Architecture, of Spokane, designed the building.
