28 Proctor Proposes Higher Density Development
From time to time in the recent past, we’ve heard rumblings of something big coming to Proctor. Reactions tend to be mixed to the idea of a large scale mixed-use development in the Proctor District. So here’s the latest: a project page from Rick Moses Development shows a couple images of a proposed development that would hold 135 apartments above 12,000 square feet of retail at street level.
28 Proctor is a strategically located mixed-use project situated in the City of Tacoma’s Proctor Mixed-Use Center district. Fronting North Proctor Street, the undertaking proposes a blend of new multi-family residential, retail, and parking uses in a development that takes advantage of the City’s new, forward thinking zoning regulations. Appropriately scaled to fit the City’s goal to promote the development of desirable, convenient multi-family housing in mixed-use districts by rehabilitating and improving existing vacant and underutilized parcels.
RM/d [Rick Moses Development] was brought in as a partner to manage the development and leasing of the 135 apartments as well as 12,000 square feet of ground level retail. Rick is responsible for all aspects of this multi-story urban development project.
A story from The News Tribune covers what few details there are about the development, and the many more objections and concerns from neighborhood stakeholders. There are a lot of moving pieces in considering a development of this size for an established neighborhood. There’s no timeline for development, no details on financing, and not many project details.
So, are we ready for a little more density in Proctor?
