A new lodging facility for cancer patients traveling to the Spokane Area for oncology treatments broke ground earlier this month near Kendall Yards. Made possible by Cancer Can’t, a local 501(c)3 organization, the $4.6M facility will be centrally located to clinics and hospitals, and within walking distance to grocery stores and restaurants.
The 20-unit facility will generate revenue through long-term and corporate rentals to cover the cost of the cancer patient units.
SRM Development, which specializes in urban-market building projects with a vision for longevity and sustainability, has partnered with Cancer Can’t to help develop and explore the feasibility of this self-sustaining model. “It’s been really exciting to help Cancer Can’t work through how a typical for-profit model can be used in a unique way to help a non-profit provide a needed service to our community. This is such an exciting development for the City of Spokane and the surrounding communities,” says Trevor Ashenbrener, managing principal at SRM Development.
The facility design was unveiled by SOK Design Studio at this year’s Cancer Can’t fundraising gala held at the Spokane Convention Center in September.
