McKinstry - Spokane & Inland Empire Railroad Building

McKinstry - Spokane & Inland Empire Railroad Building

Ron Hall 76
The former Spokane & Inland Empire Rail Road Building was constructed in 1907 and helped advance the western United States' development of electric interurban and city railroads, and was pivotal in transforming the 1,000-person settlement formerly known as Spokane Falls into modern-day Spokane. By mid-century, the building served as a trucking warehouse and a majority of the building's historical significance had been covered or removed. McKinstry purchased the Spokane property then began construction summer 2010 and completed the restoration in just 15 months. The historic renovation and adaptive reuse of the SIERR facility focused on thoughtful sustainable design and energy efficiency. The building will save 50 percent more energy than a LEED-minimum building its size and will be only one of a handful of historic buildings nationally to target LEED Gold designation. It is now home to McKinstry's Inland Northwest operations #CTA_Architects #DCI_Engineers #Dean_Allen #general_contractors #historic_preservation #Lydig_Construction #McKinstry #Spokane
