Parkside Tower-currently under construction, will be 20 stories (216 feet) when completed

Parkside Tower

Riverstone Development-100 acre mixed use development along the Spokane River, will eventually include a 13-16 story residential/commerical tower

Those are some pretty tall projects given the size of the city. Thanks for the update man.

I know, but, you have to remember, Coeur d'Alene is a major resort town, so that is probably what drives that sort of development( that and the beautiful lake.)

Here's a screenshot from the Parkside Tower construction webcam. I also included a link to the cam. Construction on the 213 ft. tower is progressing well. The 2-story underground parking structure is nearly complete. Commercial tenants should be able to move in around December, with residents following around April of next year.

Some pictures of Coeur d'Alene taken last month. Sorry about the low-quality of some of the pictures:

Cd'A Resort (tallest bldg. in Idaho outside of Boise-216ft.)

McEuen Terrace (171ft.)

Cd'A Resort Golf Course (has the world's only floating golf green)

A view of downtown from about 2 miles away. The trees are around 90-100ft., so only the tallest buildings can be seen from this viewpoint

The height and density seem to contradict what I know about Coeur d' Alene. I guess I just need to get up there sometime.

Why is the tourist industry so big there?

Spokane is definitely on my list of travel.

Most of the tourism/service industry jobs in the area pay low wages relative to the US average. In addition, housing costs have increased almost exponentially. For many people, the cost of housing in the area is becoming prohibitive. But overall, the region has a bright future.

CDA has a lot of residential high and mid rises doesn't it? Does it have any kind of office presence at all?

thanks Jim. To me it's cool to look at CDA pics, it's like a quaint little moutian town, with quaint neightbor hoods with oversized apartment buildings. It's very interesting.

For the Riverstone Project in the NW corner of the city, the developer has proposed building 4 165' towers which should look like this:

The architect for the towers, Miller Stauffer, is the same architect that is currently building Parkside Tower and the Vox Tower in Spokane (Spokane's new tallest building, which will be 33 floors 350') Miller Stauffer

Riverstone is coming along nicely. The 15-screen AMC movie theater has been open for a year and a half. Starbucks, Coldstone Creamery, San Francisco Sourdough, and Joey's Smokin' BBQ are all open. Work on a new city park in Riverstone is underway, as is the 6-story Hampton Inn and a 2-story parking garage. Riverstone District

The work in Riverstone is continuing along as scheduled, though there is still no news on the 4 165' towers

Here's a pic of what the proposed towers will look like:

In other news, Parkside construction is moving along well. It looks like they are beginning on the third floor:

Trucks loaded with dirt from the excavation for Buildings B and C of The Village at Riverstone is hauled a few blocks away to continue filling the former gravel pit at the west end of the project.

Project begins by tearing out parking lot that fronts the Regal Cinemas, inconvenience expected to only last until fall

COEUR d'ALENE -- Rome wasn't built in a day -- and the rest of Europe took millennia.

But a major piece Coeur d'Alene version is expected to be completed before the end of this year.

Developer John Stone calls The Village at Riverstone a "European-style wellness community," with ample opportunities for entertainment, shopping and recreation without the need to get in a car.

To begin the project, the first thing was to tear out the parking lot fronting the Regal Cinemas, the focal point of The Village --but the inconvenience is only expected to last until fall.

Upon completion, an estimated 2,500 people will live and another 5,000 will work at Riverstone.

Riverstone includes the following
