Endowed with a superb site, and created with an enduring architectural style, the historic Federal Building/U.S. Post Office in Spokane has regained its position as a truly productive and prestigious part of the city's downtown urban fabric. The four-story building was originally constructed in 1909 in a style representative of the end of a relatively long period of monumental federal buildings designed by the Treasury Department, with an extension to the north completed in 1941. Completion of a comprehensive renovation of the entire facility brings a valuable building in risk of outliving its usefulness back to a secure future of productivity.
