The Spokane Conservation District’s 50-acre conservation and business campus, dubbed 8th Avenue Quarry, is entering a new stage of development with a goal to bring in businesses to the property to work onsite.
Meantime, the organization is considering other methods to bring the public into the Spokane Valley site, including trail improvements and the creation of public demonstration areas, says district director Vicki Carter.
The conservation district also is wrapping up the first phase of developments with the completion of a 15,000-square-foot multitenant building on the campus, at 4420 E. Eighth.
Carter says the district is interested in developing a 5,000-square-foot conference center in the new multitenant building, with a flexible layout that would allow for events that would accommodate 200 to 300 people. The structure then would have about 6,000 square feet of leasable tenant space and 4,000 square feet of common space.
