Rivercrossing LLC and Frank Family Investments LLC, affiliates of Liberty Lake-based development company Greenstone Corp., have submitted a land-use application for the next phase of development at Trutina, a 55-and-older gated community in Liberty Lake’s River District.
The application calls for 28 more single-family homes to be built on over 6 acres in the development. Road work has already begun for those lots, says Joe Frank, president of Greenstone.
Construction of the Trutina community began in 2016, and so far, 195 single-family homes have been sold and are occupied, Frank says. An additional 30 single-family lots, some of which have already sold, are being built upon.
Once fully developed, the neighborhood is expected to consist of nearly 400 one-story, single-family homes and between 200 and 300 multifamily units, says Frank.
“It’s a mixture of both for-sale product as well as rental product,” he says. “They all share a clubhouse and amenity package.”
The neighborhood is positioned on over 80 acres of land in the portion of Liberty Lake located north of Interstate 90. It’s bordered to the north and east by the Centennial Trail and Spokane River, to the west by Harvard Road, and to the south by Indiana Avenue.
Some of the area bordering Harvard Road may not be part of the Trutina community, Frank says, although that is yet to be determined.
Total construction costs of the development are “north of $100 million,” he says.
All the for-sale single-family homes are expected to be completed in 2025 or 2026, Frank says. The rentable multifamily housing in the development will take a little longer to complete, he says.
Single-family homes that have sold in recent years have ranged in price from the high-$300,000s to the $800,000s, Frank says. They range in size from 1,200 to 2,400 square feet, the Trutina website shows.
So far, just under 100 multifamily units have been built, Frank says.
Rentable options at Trutina include three-bed, two-bath townhomes that range in size from about 1,500 to 1,700 square feet and have two-car garages; 1,100-square-foot two-bed, two-bath villas with one-car garages; and studio, one-bed, and two-bed apartments that range in size from about 550 to 1,500 square feet and have covered parking, the website shows.
Landscaping and snow removal services are provided at the “resort-style neighborhood,” as it’s described on the Greenstone website. The community has a lot of open space and green space, as well as walking trails that connect to the Centennial Trail, Frank says.
Residents of the Trutina neighborhood also have access to the Riverside Lodge & Swim Club, a fully staffed community clubhouse equipped with an indoor pool, the Trutina Spa, and a fitness center, the Trutina website shows.
Other amenities include community garden plots and various community gatherings, including yoga classes, hiking groups, aquatics classes, and book clubs, the website shows.
While Trutina is a residential community, it isn’t far from restaurants, retail stores, and services.
On the other side of Harvard Road to the east is NoLL, which stands for North Liberty Lake, a mixed-use town center that occupies about 20 acres of land and will include between 15 and 20 buildings once complete.
The buildings will range in size from a 1,000-square-foot, single-story retail building to a 30,000-square-foot, three-story mixed-use building, the Journal previously reported.
According to the NoLL website, businesses in the developing town center include or will include New Love Coffee, The Grain Shed, Versalia Pizza, River District Modern Dentistry, Maverick’s Mens Hair, Liberty Lake Children’s Academy, Spokane Business Attorneys, and Greenstone’s own design center.
NoLL is being built in stages over a five-year period.
“Trutina’s part of the larger River District masterplan,” Frank says.
Building designs for the Trutina community are handled by Greenstone, and development and construction is being performed by companies under the Greenstone brand.
