A groundbreaking event was held earlier today to commemorate the start of construction on Tacoma Trax, a new 115-unit mixed-use building at 415 E. 25th St. set to eventually serve as the heart of the developing Tacoma Dome District.
The five-story development — among the first multifamily developments in the district and close to numerous public transit options and business/lifestyle offerings — is anticipated to be completed by 2023. According to a press release, it will feature waterfront views, private balconies, 53 secure parking stalls, and an indoor 15,000-square-foot retail space with roll-up garage doors. To reduce traffic congestion, parking demand, and foster sustainability, every Tacoma Trax resident will get an annual regional ORCA transportation pass, the release added.
The groundbreaking event, which began today at 10 a.m., was attended by GIS International Group and DMG Capital Group representatives, the project’s architect, several City officials, and about 50 community stakeholders, per a release.
