Construction of a new mill | Coeur d’Alene Press


The 50-acre Millworx location being developed in Post Falls will feature a 60-unit mixed-use apartment building (with commercial space on the ground floor), a 61-unit townhouse-style neighborhood, a former warehouse to be renovated into a restaurant or brasserie, a duel brand hotel and a Kindred & Co. bookstore and bistro.

Named Millworx because the location was once the home of the Idaho Veneer Mill, the area primarily lies between Fourth Avenue and I-90 and connects to Idaho Street north of the project.

Opening in mid-2023, Kindred & Co. will have two floors with rooftop space. The bistro section will start with a menu of small bites and beverages.

The primary contact for commercial interests is Danny Davis of Coldwell Banker Real Estate. Phone 208-691-6003. Email [email protected]. Visit
