Cheney’s Antler Hotel Apartments project now ready for leasing

Downtown loft living has come to Cheney with the official opening of the renovated Antler Hotel Apartments on Saturday.

Owner Roger Zerener renovated the second floor of his long-time commercial building at 229 N. Main – built as a hotel in 1911 – into four upscale loft apartments.

The second floor hadn’t been inhabited since the 1960s and was been used for storage.

Zerener said the units rent for $500 to $700 per month. The project was all privately financed.

He said he’s had strong interest in the units and that he’s not worried about getting them filled.
