A Spokane development group says it has launched work on a commercial building that will house Enterprise Rent-A-Car Co.'s Spokane Valley outlet.
The project at 7202 E. Sprague includes constructing a 2,100-square-foot, single-story structure, says Guy Byrd, a broker at Cornerstone Property Advisors LLC, of Spokane, who handled the Enterprise lease there.
Appleway Ventures LLC, of which Byrd is part owner, is developing the project. It's expected to be completed in December.
Enterprise plans to move there from a multitenant building at 7501 E. Sprague, a few blocks east of the project site, Byrd says.
He declined to disclose the project cost.
Vandervert Construction Inc., of Spokane, is the contractor on the project, and Russell C. Page Architects PS, also of Spokane, designed it.
The building, which will have a concrete masonry-block exterior, will include 1,500 square feet of office space, a service area, and a drive-through detail bay, Byrd says.
The Spokane Valley move will come as part of a nationwide facilities makeover launched by Enterprise, the St. Louis-based auto-rental chain, Byrd says. "Enterprise is upgrading quite a number of its sites and moving to more freestanding and newer-looking buildings," he says.
Byrd says the project will include one of the first structures to be built from the ground up in that area since the Spokane Valley City Council rescinded its Sprague-Appleway Revitalization Plan, which included restrictive setback and parking regulations.
"That probably contributed significantly to our ability to actually build something out there," Byrd says of the council action.
