| June 5, 2022 1:07 AM

The 50-acre Millworx location under development in Post Falls will include a 60-unit mixed apartment building (with commercial space on the ground floor), a 61-unit single townhome-style neighborhood, a former warehouse to be renovated into a restaurant or brewery, a duel-branded hotel and a Kindred & Co. bookstore and bistro.

Named Millworx because the location formerly was the home of the Idaho Veneer Mill, the area is primarily between Fourth Avenue and I-90 and connects to Idaho Street on the middle north of the project.

Opening in mid-2023, Kindred & Co. will be two stories with a rooftop space. The bistro section will start with a small-bite and beverage menu.

The main contact person for commercial interests is Danny Davis of Coldwell Banker Real Estate. Phone 208-691-6003. Email Check
