02/28/2003 - Eldridge Building Space Available

The Eldridge Building, in Carnegie Square near the Browne’s Addition corner of the Terabyte Triangle, was built in 1925 to house the Eldridge Buick dealership. This vintage brick building with its large industrial windows on the upper floors was built to withstand the weight of automobiles -- lots of automobiles. From the rooftop down, the Eldridge building has a concrete structure---concrete on the roof, concrete between the floors, and massive concrete bearing pillars. Originally, there was a ramp directly from the railroad into the building between the first and second floor so that a shipment of new Buicks could be driven off of the train and into the Eldridge Building. The railroad connector ramp is long gone-- replaced by a parking lot for the buildings tenants. The result is that the Eldridge has outstanding parking on two sides and even on the roof.

The Eldridge interior is very light and airy for a strong concrete building. The ceilings are 13-feet tall, and their open beam work has been painted and left in view. The large windows that wrap the upper two floors can even be easily opened and have views of Carnegie Square. While the building has modern air conditioning, radiators still provide steam heat, and ceiling fans assist with air circulation. The vintage self-service elevator has two different gates that the user must open and securely close in order to make the elevator operate.

The ambiance and heating system may be vintage, but the wiring and connectivity is modern. The Eldridge has excellent line-of-sight for wireless connectivity, and although the building does not have an optical fiber node, Wells and Company, who own the building, would help make it available for a tenant if needed, according to Spencer Stromberg, property manager. Large pipe conduit is in place for easy internal wiring.

The entire second floor of the Eldridge Building at 1325 W First Ave is available for lease. Hospice of Spokane, which outgrew the space, recently reluctantly vacated it. The entire floor is about 11,000 square feet, but Stromberg says they will subdivide into 2500 sq.ft. units as needed. Finishes and configurations are negotiable. Rents include parking, all utilities, and janitorial. Rents start at $12.50 per square foot per year for the first year, and stabilize at $14 per sq. ft. following that.
