INNOVATION DISTRICT

FFF worked with Tacoma Housing Authority (THA) to fulfill a progressive vision for their under-performing commercial property, James Center North, in West Tacoma. The legacy retail commercial site will be the first in the area to transform from an auto-dominated environment into a pedestrian-oriented, mixed-income, mixed-use community directly linked to a growing multi-modal transportation hub and community college.

Our team collaborated with an advisory group of key stakeholders, surrounding property owners, neighborhood residents, business owners and city officials, resulting in a site plan that reflects the voice and needs of the community.

 

The strength of our partnership and understanding of THA’s mission has generated a plan that will create a sense of community and establish the spark for future economic development.
