Bay Terrace


Bay Terrace consists of over 174,000 square feet (spread over two phases) of redeveloped living space for the Tacoma Housing Authority. Located on the 2500 Block along Yakima Ave in Tacoma, WA, the project includes a mixture of wood-framed carriage houses, townhomes, and stacked flats over concrete parking with unit types of one, two, and three bedrooms. The Community Center, a 7,000 square-foot, exposed steel and concrete building houses early childhood program services, property management offices and common spaces for community programs and support services. Integrated courtyards built over post-tensioned concrete parking made efficient use of the site and brought together common spaces and community gardens—the nucleus of a diverse and vibrant neighborhood.
