Atlas Mill will be a unique 70+ acre mixed-use development along the Spokane River not far from downtown Coeur d’Alene, Idaho. deChase Miksis, Edlen & Co., and Pivot North Architects were selected through a competitive RFP process to conceptualize and design two prominent parcels within the 13-lot development. In November 2021, Petra, Inc. joined the team as General Contractor to manage the day-to-day operations of construction.
There will be a mix of multi-family and retail within the two lots. Both sites uniquely address their specific site constraints and opportunities but are all grounded in a rich northwest regionalism design aesthetic. Built with a bold and timeless material palette of wood, metal, and masonry, the buildings echo the environment around them. The mixed-use buildings are connected to each other and the community through native landscape open space to provide opportunities for both visual and pedestrian connectivity to the waterfront.
Area 10 allows for housing density with three-story residential buildings containing one- and two-bedroom flats that are a fresh take on the garden-style concept.
Area 12 is perfectly situated at the entrance of Atlas Mill to provide a greater mix of uses through mixed-use housing and retail and serves as a public connection to the waterfront
