City asks for public input on building heights along Riverfront Park

The City of Spokane is seeking public input into a possible increase in the height of buildings on the south side of Riverfront Park.

The City envisions development on the two surface lots on either side of Stevens Street, but property owners are concerned that current height restrictions will prevent them from developing those sites.

The City is seeking possible amendments to already adopted height requirements on the south side of the park. The current proposal is to allow greater heights in that area in exchange for a limitation on uses in towers (residential or hotel only) and consideration of shadowing impacts on the Park. Under consideration are limitations on the floor size of towers and the distance between them.
