WHEN IT COMES TO THE McKINLEY SCHOOL IN SPOKANE.
THERE IS NO SHORTAGE OF POSSIBILITIES FOR THE BUILDING.

We think that having a mix of uses would be really
If maybe we have a brewery here and maybe some food
options on site.
Possibly office use.
BUILT IN 1902.
WAS ONLY ONE-THIRD OF THE SIZE IT IS NOW.
BUT SHORTLY AFTER IT WAS BUILT.
THERE WAS MORE DEMAND FOR ELEMENTARY SCHOOL SPACE.
AND THE BUILDING GREW TO WHAT IT IS TODAY.
:50 - :57
NATS- Huge fire doors.
Awesome rubble foundation.
THE BUILDING IS ALSO MADE UP OF SEVERAL DIFFERENT
FROM CLASSROOMS WITH GIANT CEILINGS AND LARGE WINDOWS.
TO A BASEMENT MADE UP OF BRICK AND CEMENT.
:03 - :11
I think that's kind of fun, having the building speaking
to you in different ways and telling you what uses
are going to be best for it.
THE BUILDING HAS HAD SEVERAL USES AFTER THE SCHOOL
BOARD SOLD IT.
INCLUDING MOST RECENTLY A SET FOR THE T-V SHOW Z-NATION.
:22 - :23
NATS- It's kind of a fun artifact of the building.
NOW DEVELOPERS SAY THEY'RE HOPING TO GIVE THE BUILDING
WHILE KEEPING THE CHARACTER OF THE SCHOOL INTACT.
:07 - :21
We'll have to find parts of these classrooms, some
of the trim, some of the chalkboard, some of these
elements that tell you 'this was a classroom, this
was its history,' but updating it for modern use.
THEY ALSO HOPE THE DEVELOPMENT OF THE SCHOOL WILL
ENCOURAGE OTHER BUILDERS TO TAKE ON NEW PROJECTS IN
