33,000 square feet of leasable space.

Built to house the Spokane Club and other businesses, this building lost its upper two floors and mansard roof when it caught fire in 1939. A flat roof replaced original one, and the squatty five-story building continued in this state through the end of the century. By the early 1990s, the building was derelict and vacant, apart from Spokane landmark Time Jewelry and generations of pigeons. And it was an eyesore. In 1992, Steve became convinced that this odd structure had potential. He purchased the Legion Building and spent two years restoring it to its original form.

The building was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1994 and as a contributing property in the East Downtown Historic District in 2002. It received the Valerie Sivinski Award for Outstanding Achievement in Historic Preservation in 2005.
