A Spokane construction company applied for building permits for an apartment complex on this property in north Richland.

TW Clark Construction, LLC of Spokane submitted building permit applications to the city of Richland on May 15 to build 114 apartments in five buildings, a clubhouse, and a swimming pool on four acres at 1866 Jadwin Ave. and McMurray St.

The property is about a block west of Safeway and other services on George Washington Way.

Local developer Greg Markel, who held the property under Washington Securities & Investment Corporation, sold it on June 22, 2022, for $1.5 million to Jadwin Spokane LLC whose registered agent is Boyd Mayo, according to the Washington Secretary of State’s database

Early last year, due to a mistake by the city, the Richland City Council had to twice approve Markel’s request to rezone the property from C-1 that allows restaurants, gas stations and auto parts stores and other neighborhood services, to C-LB zoning for offices, hotels, and apartments.  

Markel said at the time that he was having difficulty marketing the property with the C-1 zoning.

The Observer noticed that the list of people in the packet of information presented at the March 15, 2022, meeting, who had been notified of the proposed zoning change, were from another neighborhood.

The mistake meant that the rezoning process had to begin again so that the property owners adjacent to the Jadwin parcel could be notified.

On May 3, 2022, the council approved the change a second time, and a few weeks later Markel sold the property.
