Progressions Credit Union is looking to build a new branch in North Spokane.

Spokane-based HDG Architecture filed a pre-development application on behalf of the credit union to build a 3,200-square-foot branch with a three-way covered drive-thru, employee patio, and 24 parking spaces. parking at 9233 and 9249 N. Nevada St.

Progressions Credit Union purchased the two sites for $1.2 million in June, according to Spokane County Assessor’s Office records.

The estimated cost of the project is $1.2 million, depending on the application.

A project contractor was not specified on the application.

A pre-development application does not necessarily mean that a project will take place, rather an applicant seeks information from the city about design regulations or if the site is feasible for development.

Progressions Credit Union, formerly known as Spokane Postal Credit Union, was founded in 1928.

The credit union was incorporated in 1933 after the state passed a credit union law.

In 1962, Spokane Postal Credit Union merged with Railway Mail Credit Union, according to its website.

In 2003, Spokane Postal Credit Union expanded its membership to include those who live, work, worship, and attend school in the state.

The following year, the Spokane Postal Credit Union Board of Directors approved a name change to Progressions Credit Union to reflect the evolution of its membership.
