WALL Falls Condos opened it's doors Sunday afternoon and we were there to bask in the luxe sweetness. Move fast because with only two units remaining, this may be your only chance to share a wall, floor, or plumbing system with Spokane's celebrity circle. If that doesn't peak your interest then the views most certainly will. Even from the large bargain-priced first floor unit that we toured, this view will be tough to beat at any time of the day. Still, as nice as the inside was (think beige), it's the outside that seems to have people troubled.
All that brick and south-facing floor-to-ceiling windows are sweet, but the building itself looks a little, well, um, institutional. C'mon, considering the back-end is what most of Spokane will see, give us something to look at other than a blank wall o' brick. These eyes need some variety. With such a primo location, we were left feeling that Upper Falls missed an opportunity for raising the bar for urban design here in Spokane.
