The Franklin to open in Richland this fall

Fortify Holdings expects to complete the first phase of the conversion of a former hotel into The Franklin, a 205-unit apartment building featuring 350-square-foot studios, this fall.

The property at 1515 George Washington Way also features La Bella Vita Kitchen and Bar.

The Franklin consists of a six-story tower and a back wing with two stories and overlooks George Washington Way in central Richland.

Work on the tower will be complete in November. The balance of the building will be complete in early 2023. Units will be leased at market rate rent.

In addition to the La Bella Vita space, the renovation includes creating space for a coffee shop, fitness center, poolside cantina bar, banquet rooms and commercial office space.

Fortify, based in Portland, is represented in Eastern Washington by Daniel Jacobs, Robert Jacobs, Brett Jacobs, Cameron Wagar, Troy Lynch and Abigail Donner.

Avenue 5 Property Management will manage the property. A property website will go online in the coming months
