The Logan Neighborhood

The Logan Neighborhood is the area east of Division and north of the Spokane River that includes Gonzaga University and the Avista headquarters. The neighborhood extends to the east as far as Crestline and has Euclid

Saint Aloysius Catholic Church

In addition to the scenic Spokane River and the beautiful Gonzaga Campus, Logan has gorgeous tree lined streets filled with early century Craftsman homes, four parks, and the Centennial Bake Trail. The neighborhood is located in the heart of Spokane within walking distance or a short bike ride to many downtown area attractions. With easy access to public transportation as well as speedy freeway access, Logan is close to everything.

The Logan Neighborhood is one of Spokane's earliest neighborhoods with the original platting dating back to 1884. Because this neighborhood was not hit by the great fire of 1889 that leveled downtown, this is where you will find some of the very oldest homes in Spokane.

Gonzaga University

Gonzaga dominates the south half of the Logan Neighborhood. Gonzaga University was founded by the Jesuits in 1887 and named after the Jesuit saint Aloysius Gonzaga. In addition to the 152 acre university, the Logan Neighborhood supports the campus with much of the housing and other services requires by the 7,500 students that attend the University. Many of the businesses near Hamilton cater to those students.

There were 59 homes sold in the Logan Neighborhood last year. Nine of them were sold as rental income property because of the proximity to Gonzaga. Of the remaining 50, the average sale price was $132,589 and the median sale price was $133,875. The most expensive home sold for $341,500 and the least expensive home sold for $55,000.

The Logan Neighborhood is in the early stages of a gentrification process which makes it a great area to invest, especially for first time home buyers. With the average home price being well below the city average yet having so many positive attributes, homes in this neighborhood will see significant increase in value over the next decade.
