Light up the stacks

Light up the stacks

Steam Plant Square is pleased to offer “Light Up the Stacks!” as a way to celebrate or promote select philanthropic and cultural events in our community.

The 225-foot twin stacks are an iconic part of the Spokane skyline, and “Light Up the Stacks!” is a great opportunity to add awareness to organizations and events that are doing good work for our community.

We welcome requests to join us as a Lighting Partner if you have a non-commercial, community or philanthropic event to highlight.

History of a local landmark

From Idle to Iconic

The Steam Plant supplied heat to more than 300 buildings in downtown Spokane from 1916 until 1986. Ten years later, in 1996, Avista Corp and Wells and Company teamed up to bring the building back to life. It was transformed into the Steam Plant Square, a mixed-use space with much of its industrial equipment built into the decor and re-opened in 1999. The renovation earned multiple awards including the first-of-its-kind recognition from the National Trust for Historic Preservation for historic buildings in the Pacific Northwest region.

The iconic twin smokestacks stand 225’ high and have been opened up so you can step inside. Stacks Restaurant and the Steam Plant Brewing Co. & Pub are nestled among the remaining catwalks and pipes and boilers. Be sure to take a self-guided tour of this historic landmark. All levels are open to the public and are punctuated with displays revealing the history of the plant and its operations at the various viewpoints, highlighting its rich history and the important role it played in Spokane’s past.
