Hailey Project Resumes Today

--186-Unit Mixed-Use Project to Redefine Tacoma Avenue Corridor-- 

The Hailey project – a $50 million 186-unit mixed-use apartment building at 1210 Tacoma Ave. S – has officially resumed today.  The general contractor has begun mobilization of the site and visible construction should commence within two weeks.  The completion date is expected in the first quarter of 2021. HQC USA LLC broke ground on the project in October 2017, but had temporarily halted work to resolve complexities related to foreign financing. 

“The Hailey project will bring approximately 90 living-wage construction jobs to Tacoma and increase housing options,” said Mayor Victoria Woodards. “The City is very pleased that this mixed-use revitalization project has been reinitiated, and I want to credit the City staff in our Community & Economic Development and Planning & Development Services departments for their diligent work.”

HQC USA LLC – based out of Renton, Wash. and headquartered in Vietnam – purchased the land for $750,000 in July 2017. It had previously served as a parking lot for the Tacoma Public Library’s downtown location. 

When complete, the Hailey will feature five floors of living space as well as two floors of underground parking, and add feet on the street in Downtown Tacoma.

More information on the Hailey project, and other economic development efforts that have been planned or are underway, can be obtained through Community & Economic Development Project Manager Debbie Bingham at dbingham@cityoftacoma.org or (253) 591-5117.
