A mixed-used development, tentatively named Neighborly Ventures Apartments, is planned in the city of Liberty Lake, says Allyson Andrade, marketing communications coordinator for Whipple Consulting Engineers Inc., the project applicant.

The 21-acre development site is being divided into six lots, says Andrade. The development will be comprised of 14 three-story apartment buildings with 288 residential units, combined. The development will have a range of one-bedroom to three-bedroom residential units. In addition, each unit will be assigned its own carport, says Andrade.

The triangular-shaped project site, which hasn’t been assigned an address yet, is located at the southwest corner of Country Vista Drive and Kramer Parkway in west Liberty Lake. Henry Lane runs north and south along the west side of the development site and is the boundary between the cities of Liberty Lake and Spokane Valley. To the west of Henry Lane is Ridgeline High School.

Start dates for the commercial side of the development also will depend on market conditions, she says.

Preliminary site plans do not detail how many commercial buildings are planned but do state that 51% of the site will be developed for commercial use, and the development will have a total of 540 parking spaces.

A community center, dog park, a small playground for young children, and other recreational amenities also are planned, Andrade adds.

Andrade declines to disclose the contractor or architect for the project. A notice of application with the city of Liberty Lake shows the landowner as Kirkland, Washington-based Liberty Lake Land Co. LCC. A representative of the company couldn’t be reached immediately for comment.

Work on the development is planned to start in late summer or early fall and be completed within the next 10 to 12 months, says Andrade, although she says market conditions could dictate that the development be completed in phases, which may include early grading, utility installations, portioning of the infrastructure, and platting in two or more phases.

Andrade declines to disclose the estimated value of the development.
