Today, the former site of Far West Billiards also sits empty, as does the Tradewinds Motel and several other businesses on that end of downtown. Even so, the Spokane Rising blog is asking if you've noticed signs of revitalization in that end of downtown?
The blog posts points to several new projects in the works, including a condo tower in Peaceful Valley, lofts, a brewery incubator, a hotel and restaurant. Check it out at the link above to see what businesses you could be frequenting in the future.
