The past two years have seen a surge of apartment projects in Tacoma, at a pace not seen since the 1980's.

There was a groundbreaking for Tacoma's Town Center last week. This week another groundbreaking is scheduled for a mixed-use development at 1210 Tacoma Ave. S. This 7 story project will include two levels of underground parking, 166 residential units, and ground level retail amenities. 

There are well over 1,000 apartment units under construction or permitted to be built in the Tacoma downtown/Stadium area alone.
