1st Avenue Mixed-Use
Downtown Spokane Living: Mixed-use urban residence will appeal to young professionals
This seven story podium project will be a newly constructed residential mid-rise bordering an existing building on the same block. 1st Avenue Mixed-Use will have a two-level concrete podium with five above-grade wood-framed levels. The building will have 53 residential units and commercial space on the street level.
DCI is providing civil and structural design and support for this project. The structural scope encompassed developing a demolition plan with the contractor for the existing building and designing a building with pile foundations, two levels of PT concrete slabs and five levels of wood framing. The civil scope involved creating a site plan; identifying site drainage and retention needs; detailing grading plans; and developing a utility plan to fulfill service needs. The project included a stormwater detention tank located below the building to meet local stormwater requirements. DCI also coordinated street frontage improvements with a major city street project, which required close collaboration with the City’s design team.
