Construction of a third Hico Village in the Spokane area is expected to get under way this month at 1201 N. Barker, says John Tonani, a partner in P&T Partners, the Spokane company that owns and develops the retail and fueling centers.
Tonani declines to disclose the expected cost of the newest planned Hico, a 10,000-square-foot retail center that will be built on a 6.2-acre parcel at the northwest corner of the Barker Road-Interstate 90 interchange, across Barker from the GTX Truck Stop.
Associated Construction Inc., of Spokane, has been selected to build the structure, Tonani says.
The building will house a Wendys Old-Fashioned Hamburgers restaurant with both inside seating and drive-through service, a large convenience store with a laundromat, and about 2,200 square feet of additional space available for lease, he says.
The project also will include eight fueling islands.
P&T Partners is seeking building permits for the project from Spokane County now, Tonani says. Construction is expected to take roughly four months to complete.
P&T Partners also owns land adjacent to the planned Hico Village location, and wants to develop a second phase of the center there next year.
That phase might include mini-storage units or an RV park, similar to those at the Hico Village at 10606 N. Newport Highway, Tonani says.
Russell Page Architects, of Spokane, is the architect for the project.
Pacific Environmental Services Co., of Spokane, will design and build the fueling islands and canopies over them, Tonani says.
P&T Partners is owned by Tonani, his wife, Julee, and Playfair Business Park Inc.
The companys original Hico Village is located at 9219 E. Sprague, and it also owns other properties here, Tonani says.
