Tacoma old city hall to undergo redevelopment

October 31, 2018 by  

The city of Tacoma recently announced that is has started negotiating with Surge Tacoma to redevelop and revitalize Old City Hall.

Surge Tacoma was selected out of the five companies that had responded to a request from the city to renovate the building in the downtown area. It is expected that the agreement will be signed and completed by January.

Mayor Victoria Woodards said that the proposal of Surge Tacoma was compelling as it planned to create new facilities within the building that would be of interest to business people, residents, and visitors.

The plan from Surge Tacoma includes three restaurants. One would be in the basement and two would be on the rooftop. There would also be a bar on Pacific Avenue. The fifth floor will have 40 micro apartments at both affordable and market rates, while the third and fourth floors would have 20,000 square feet of office and co-working space. About 20,000 square feet of retail space would occupy the first and second floors. An event space is planned for the clock tower.

Woodards added that the proposal can be a welcoming space for the public, provide affordable housing for those who want to live and work in Tacoma, and be an economic catalyst for the city.

Banner printing companies can be used to inform the community of such new projects and their benefits for the community.
