Mahogany Lane: Eleven lots will include accessory dwelling units allowing income generation or in-law/caretaker suites. Previously owned by Spokane developer Lanzce Douglass, the development is being undertaken by local businessman and Bellerive resident Rob Bloem. The seemingly small project is a quite complex as it involves land swaps with the Bellerive Homeowners Association, Ignite CdA, the City of CdA, the Trail foundation. A few dozen conditions were placed on the project by the planning department. It sailed through the planning commission review regardless of some opposition.
Opponents object to the proximity of the homes to the river and the break in continuity of public access to the river. Proponents cheer the realignment of the Centennial Trail at Beebe Blvd and look forward to the mixed-use building adjacent to the trail which may house a café and/or watering hole for weary riders.
Bloem, who owns Stancraft Boats among other related businesses employing 150+ people, has apparently propped up a new high-end company called Stancraft Construction which will likely build the homes. Perhaps the most visible project of Stancraft Construction is the Nest at Lakeside, covered here. See below for this project’s location, site plans, elevation rendering, and three renderings of the planned mixed-use commercial building.
