For several years, Tasha Pasco, principal managing broker for Coldwell Banker Bain’s Tacoma and Puyallup branch offices, has been watching the progress underway at the Village at Chambers Bay. And for several years, she has known that as soon as her current lease was up, she was moving her office there.
That day has finally arrived. Later this month, Pasco and some 30 of her agents will set up shop in their new digs at 3633 Market Place W. in the Village at Chambers Bay. Their new 5,000 square foot space will feature a host of industrial-inspired design details like exposed beams and 16-foot ceilings. It also sports a double-sided fireplace, a lounge and patio.
The move represents an effort by Coldwell Banker Bain to relocate its South Sound offices into walkable neighborhoods. Within the last few years, they have opened up shop in the Ruston and Proctor neighborhoods, and she says the new Village at Chambers Bay office is “the final piece of the puzzle.”
“We are so excited to be in the heart of everything,” Pasco says. “I’ve been looking forward to this for years.”
The timing is ideal, given that they are located in the Latitude 47 building which will also mark its grand opening. The five-story, mixed-use building brings an additional 170 market-rate apartments to University Place. The residential units in Latitude 47 complement the 100 market-rate apartments that are fully leased and occupied in the Clearview Building on the north side of the Civic Building in the Village at Chambers Bay.
Together, the two buildings also offer 20,000 square feet of commercial space on the ground level plus underground parking.
On Tuesday, July 11, City staff joined Pasco and members of her team, as well as representatives of SEB, Inc., the developer of the Latitude 47 and Clearview buildings, for a special ribbon cutting ceremony.
“This marks another milestone in the development of the Village at Chambers Bay,” said Mariza Craig, the City’s director of economic development. “They say Rome wasn’t built in a day, and neither was the Village but we’re making progress and it’s clear that momentum is growing.”
