Developers’ Dream

For developers, this property is a goldmine. The sale includes an additional vacant parcel (currently with a garage, ready for 3+ units in URX zoning.) totaling 9,650 sqft of land for both. The parcel with the detached garage currently has two covered parking spaces and can accommodate approximately six cars in the driveway.

The URX zoning and proximity to the bus stop make this property an ideal candidate for high-density development. This zoning encourages high density, making it perfect for new projects. Plus, the parcels are located in the City of Tacoma Tax Incentive for Multifamily Housing area, offering an 8-year or 12-year tax exemption on improvements. The proximity to a bus stop just half a block away also reduces or could eliminate off-street parking requirements per unit.
