About This Item


Full Description

The Tacoma Center for Urban Waters is a three-story lab building that was envisioned by the City of Tacoma, Wash., to be a beacon on the water; an icon that can be seen from the downtown core; and an example of using building and site sustainable strategies that can set the direction for future projects in the city. The 51,000 ft2 (4738 m2) building functions as a shared research facility for the City of Tacoma, University of Washington, and Puget Sound Partnership. The new facility was proposed to maintain the cleanliness of the waterway and help restore, protect and maintain other water bodies throughout the Puget Sound.
