Building Downtown - Spokane, North Idaho News & Weather

Building Spokane

Spokane is enjoying an exciting period of revitalization and growth and we're building our future by acknowledging our past. We're renovationg, reconstructing and seeing the incredible economic benefit of simply doing the right thing by our downtown architectural treasures. It's the ultimate artistic efficiency.

The National Trust for Historic Preservation said Spokane has "a preservation ethic." That's high praise. We need to keep it true.

        When the Carrousel first opened in Riverfront Park in 1975, one of the first groups to ride it
        were the kids from the Hutton Settlement. So, we invited the Hutton kids to be part of the
        reconstruction. Here, you'll tour the project with them as the 12 structural columns are being
        lifted into place.
        In this video, you’ll see the progress on the new “M’ Building and learn more about how
        Walker Construction meets these unique safety challenges.
