A large retail, office, and apartment development called Pine Water Plaza is being proposed on a 40-acre site along U.S. 2 just north of Spokane.
The Spokane office of CLC Associates Inc. has requested from Spokane County a zone reclassification that would allow the multi-use project to move forward on the 40-acre site, which is on the west side of U.S. 2, across the highway from the U.S. 2-Nevada Street junction.
Plans submitted with the county indicate that Pine Water Plaza would include 174,100 square feet of retail space, 96,700 square feet of office space, and a 48-unit apartment complex.
County records list Pente LLC, in care of Duane Nelson, as the property owner. Nelson couldnt be reached for comment, nor could Dwight Hume, a senior planner at CLC.
Wal-Mart Inc. had proposed building a store on that site in 1996. That request was denied, however, and the big retailer ended up building elsewhere.
The property now is zoned for urban-residential and community-business uses.
A public hearing before the Spokane County Hearing Examiner was scheduled for Wednesday, Nov. 6.
As proposed, a retail strip in the project would front along U.S. 2 and would include a 121,900-square-foot retail center with two large anchor-type spaces and a number of smaller shop spaces. Six retail pads would be located in front of it.
The office-park portion of the project would be located west of the retail center and would include six buildings ranging in size from 13,500 square feet of floor space to 21,600 square feet of space.
The 48-unit, five-building apartment complex would be at the westernmost end of the development.
