DAVENPORT – Lincoln Hospital’s shiny new building has been up and at-em for almost three weeks now, leaving many to wonder what would happen with the old building. Mike Stormo and Garry Rosman had the same question when they saw a “For Sale” sign where the clinic used to be, but after some discussion, decided to buy the building and plan to turn them into retirement, senior living apartments.

The apartments, which will be called Davenport Senior Independent Living, will be for people 55 and older who are looking to downsize while maintaining a small-town lifestyle without having to move to Spokane.

“We saw the old building was for sale and didn’t want it to just sit there, empty,” Stormo said. “Eventually, we came up with the idea, negotiated and got a zoning variance from the city. It’s something we could do that’s needed here.”

Stormo said he’s heard from seniors who move to Spokane from Davenport and never have visitors, because their friends in the small town don’t want to make the long jaunt to the big city. With Davenport Senior Independent Living, those seniors could downsize here instead.

The complex will have eight two-bedroom units, two one-bedroom plus units and one single-bedroom unit. Each 800 square foot unit will have a garage, basement storage unit, regular appliances, gas fireplace and walk-in tubs.

There will also be a common area for seniors to gather to play cards and eat dinner together, if desired.

The units will rent on a month-to-month basis, Stormo said, instead of forcing seniors to lock into a year-long lease during a time when they may need to move at a moment’s notice due to health issues. Just one month’s notice will be required to move out.

“There isn’t anything quite like this in Davenport right now,” Stormo said.

Stormo and Rosman, who will operate under the business title Luxury Living LLC, hope to begin renting in June 2022. They’ve already seen interest from fascinated potential tenants.

“We’re starting to take a list down now,” Stormo said.

Stormo and Rosman will begin construction ceremoniously with a small event at the old clinic building sometime next week, but a date has yet to be decided.
