SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) - Plans to revitalize the landmark Ridpath Hotel in downtown Spokane are moving forward.

The Spokane City Council is expected to vote in the coming weeks to loan $1.75 million to further the $20 million project, which is expected to bring 206 apartments to the former hotel.

Developer Ridpath Club Apartments LLC is also seeking $2 million from the Washington state Housing Finance Commission, which provides funding for construction of housing for low- to moderate-income families statewide.

The Ridpath has languished since it closed in 2008.

The Spokesman-Review says plans for the building include 102 “micro-apartments” smaller than 500 square feet, 45 studio apartments, 58 one-bedroom apartments and a 2-bedroom apartment.
