With a prime midtown Anchorage location, Cook Inlet Housing Authority’s (CIHA) new mixed-use building combines retail and residential space in a sleek, energy-efficient design.

Located at the corner of 36th Avenue and Spenard Road, the 33-unit structure is comprised of 2,800 square feet of retail space on the street level and three upper levels of mixed-income one-bedroom apartments. “It’s all about location, location, location,” said Sezy Gerow-Hanson, CIHA’s public and resident relations director. The building, known as 3600 Spenard, offers convenient midtown access for retail customers and easy access to major transportation arterials, job hubs and retail/ restaurant options for residents.

3600 Spenard also boasts alternative energy systems, including geothermal to supplement heating and cooling, and solar photovoltaic panels to offset electrical expenses. The building is designed and built to meet a Six Star energy-efficiency rating by the State of Alaska.

Construction began July 2016 and is due to be completed this August; rents will range from $785 to $1,250. CIHA anticipates it will open the application window for this property in May; more information will be posted at and on the CIHA Facebook page as the date draws nearer.
