ENTIAT – With the resounding success of “Phase 1,” the Entiaqua Apartments on the right bank of the Columbia River (as it flows south), is quickly nearing completion of “Phase 2” of the three-phase project.

The back porches of the three-story buildings face the river, which is about 100 yards away. Construction workers on the scene were optimistic that the Phase 2 structure would be done in late winter or early spring 2021. With Phase 3 starting soon thereafter. Each of the three phases will contain 12 apartments.

A newly asphalted parking lot was recently completed adjacent to the complex.

The apartments feature one and two-bedroom units with several floorplans and are pet friendly.

According to Goodell, “Entiaqua refers to rushing water” in the original Native American (Salish) language, so developer Doug Goodell decided to give that name to his project to honor the Entiat tribe, part of the Colville Confederation of Tribes.

“Every apartment has a large deck facing the river,” he said, to give residents a waterfront view.

Together with co-owner/developer Tom Andrewjeski, the duo bought the 2.6 acre parcel for $340,000 in mid-2019 and have invested $1.8 million for Phase 1, more expensive than the next phases, because “Phase 1 contains most of the infrastructure for the entire project,” Goodell said.

“We have enough space for 60 apartments,” according to Goodell, but the project is purposely going slowly with one 12-unit structure being built at a time. Each independent structure has six 1-bedroom, 1-bath and six 2-bedroom, 2-bath units and rent for $1,100 (700sf) to $1,450 (1,000sf) each.

“It is an ideal location because it is halfway between Chelan and Wenatchee,” he said. There will also be land specifically dedicated for a commercial retail area of 2,000 square feet, according to Goodell.
