Exit133 is about Tacoma
A New Vision for the Kalakala?
So much a part of Tacoma now, yet, so forgotten …
It’s been a few years since we’ve thought about the Kalakala. Now it’s back … with a new vision that includes dry-docking the Kalakala, an indoor theme park and convincing a Mexican scrap yard to release four decommissioned historic state ferrys. From the Weekly Volcano:
Plans for the Kalakala would involve complete renovation and dry docking of the ferry at a site secured along the Thea Foss Waterway, between the now defunct Esplanade Condominium project and Thea’s Landing. Rodrigues has already secured seed funding for all phases of his dream, which he has dubbed the Columbia Gardens and MV Kalakala Project.
Really? Rodrigues is going before the Foss Waterway Development Authority tomorrow.
