Stillwater Apartments


The Stillwater Apartments provide affordable housing for Tacoma residents of the Stadium District. The building is five stories of wood-framed apartments constructed over one level of underground parking. The project developer challenged the design team to utilize a wedge-shaped lot with existing multi-story buildings on either side. In order to realize this project, PCS made use of temporary tie-backs, a post-tensioned concrete transfer level, and five stories of wood construction that matched the shape and maximized the square footage of the site.
