Wonder Building Adaptive Reuse Tour
Do you remember Wonder Bread in Spokane?
The Wonder Building is an adaptive re-use of the former Continental Bakery, popularly know as the "Wonder Bread Building." This former industrial building, built from 1909 through 1920, operated through the 1990's before being abandoned for the better part of two decades before being rehabilitated and placed on the Spokane Register of Historic Places.
The building has been transformed into 100,000 sf of commercial mixed-used space including office and retail lease space and a large public market space spanning the length of the block. Major structural changes included the re-construction of the west wing which had burned in 1947, the construction of a central circulation space, the expansion of the third floor to the east and west with roof-top terraces, as well as extensive structural repairs due to damage and neglect. The project also includes on-site storm water retention, outdoor pedestrian space, and a 400 stall parking garage with ground floor retail space.
The developers are Spokane natives Nick Mounsey and Pete Mounsey. Wolfe Architecture Group led the design team which includes Parametrix and GLR Engineers. The General Contractor is Yost-Gallagher Construction.
