Vandervert Construction Inc. also is erecting a Super 1 Foods supermarket that will anchor The Crossings development, depicted here, in Athol.

Spokane-based Vandervert Construction Inc. is erecting a speculative retail building at 2710 E. 57th on the upper South Hill, says company spokeswoman Andrea Frye.

The nearly $800,000 project is under construction at the southeast corner of 57th Avenue and Mt. Vernon Street, on the west end of an existing retail center.

The building will have 6,900 square feet of retail space and up to five tenants, Frye says.

No tenants have been announced for the building yet, she says.

Russell C. Page Architects PS, of Spokane, designed the project, which Frey says is scheduled to be completed this fall.

County records show Julfrakids LLC, of Spokane, owns the project site and the adjacent 15,000-square-foot retail center, which was constructed in 1989.

On the North Side, Vandervert also is the contractor on a $550,000 Carl’s Jr. project at 1617 W. Northwest Boulevard.

The hamburger restaurant will front Northwest Boulevard near a former Albertson’s supermarket building, which now is occupied by a Planet Fitness gym and a Goodwill Industries of the Inland Northwest store.

Office of Architecture & Design PLLC, of Boise, designed the Carl’s Jr. project, which is owned by New York-based restaurant franchisee BRNK Spokane LLC. 

Frye says the project will be completed in December.

Construction also is under way on an $11.5 million Super 1 Foods supermarket project in Athol.

As earlier reported in the Journal, the grocery store will anchor The Crossings commercial center at the northeast corner of U.S. 95 and state Route 54 in north Kootenai County.

The supermarket, which will include an Ace Hardware store inside it, tentatively is scheduled to open in spring 2018.

Mercier Architecture & Planning, of Spokane, designed the project.

Newport Beach, Calif.-based Hughes Investments is developing The Crossings.
