Yakima, Wash.-based Apple Valley Dental & Braces plans to erect a new medical office building at 2121 N. Division, which is slated to be its third Spokane-area location, says Jolene Babka, operations officer with the company.Zach Bull, project manager with Baker Construction & Development Inc., of Spokane, says the project cost is about $1.7 million, and the building will have about 7,000 square feet of space.
The dental office will be the building’s only tenant, says Bull. The new structure will be built on currently vacant land, and the exterior will include a parking lot and landscaping.
Construction is expected to start in April and to be completed in November, he says.
Babka says the facility will be the eighth office for Apple Valley Dental. The practice’s two current Spokane-area offices are located at 2929 N. Market, in northeast Spokane, and at 14319 E. Sprague, in Spokane Valley.
Established in 2003, Apple Valley Dental & Braces provides dental services, braces, and oral surgery, she says. The company employs between 200 and 225 people.
Babka says the practice is opening a third Spokane-area office because it has been well received here.
“We’re just excited to continue offering services in the Spokane area,” she says.
