Vet acquires land to develop larger clinic, move practice

Construction at new site in Indian Trail area eyed for summer or fall 2014

  • Print Article

A Spokane veterinarian has bought 4 acres of land in northwest Spokane and says he plans to develop a building there for the Indian Trail Animal Hospital PS practice.

The veterinarian, Ryan Brown, who is a partner in the animal clinic, also heads Indian Trail & Barnes LLC, which recently acquired the property at 9101 N. Woodridge, near the northeast corner of Indian Trail and Barnes roads, where a 7,000-square-foot structure is being planned to accommodate the clinic, he says.

Jim Orcutt, a commercial agent with Spokane brokerage NAI Black, handled the real estate transaction.

The practice currently is located nearby in the Sundance Plaza shopping center, at 9027 N. Indian Trail, near the southwest corner of Indian Trail and Barnes roads, where it occupies about 1,500 square feet of leased space, Brown says.

The move, though, likely is nearly two years away, as Brown says he expects construction will start in the summer or fall of 2014.

Architectural Werks Inc., of Kirkland, Wash., is designing the project, which is still in a conceptual stage, Brown says. No contractor has been selected for it yet, he says.

Brown estimates the construction cost at $1.5 million.

The practice has been at its current location for about eight years. Brown joined the practice in 2008 and became a partner with veterinarian Keri Bayley in 2009.

Another veterinarian also is based at the practice, which has 11 employees, he says.

Brown says he expects the clinic will seek a fourth veterinarian and hire a couple of additional employees for its support staff when the clinic relocates.
