Apartments planned, delayed by economy

A Liberty Lake company took out a building permit with the city of Coeur d'Alene on Friday, June, 11, for site development valued at $1 million. But don't look for construction to begin any time soon on the site across from Mill River, at 3901 Seltice Way.

The project by Riverview Ventures, which started a year and a half ago, is slated to be an apartment complex, but financing has been an issue in the current real estate economy, said Bart Bennett, project manager for Rudeen Development, also of Liberty Lake, which will be the contractor for the project.

"We had to pull the permit before the expiration date," he said.

Hopefully, Bennett said, work will be under way by late summer. The first of two planned phases will include 109 units, with three- and four-story buildings, with a second phase similar in size. A clubhouse is also planned on the site, which is about 10 acres.
