Built in 1903, the Albert Apartments is an excellent example of early 20th-century apartment house construction. It is one of only two remaining apartment buildings of the 15 apartment buildings that were once built in Saunder’s Addition, in East Central Spokane, during the early 1900's. The facade design of the Albert Apartments is a fine example of the Colonial Revival style, while the interior of the building--remodeled in 1931 by noted Spokane architect Charles R. Wood--reveals Craftsman-style influence. The Albert Apartments was named after Albert Commellini, one of Spokane’s most colorful businessmen and a noted leader of the city’s Italian community.
