Mercy Housing Northwest (MHNW) is celebrating the construction start of its newest affordable housing community, New Tacoma II Senior Apartments. New Tacoma II Senior Apartments will add an additional 40-unit, service-enriched senior housing apartments to Tacoma’s Hilltop neighborhood and will combine accessible, energy efficient design with resident services. New Tacoma II will be constructed adjacent to and integrated with MHNW’s New Tacoma I Senior Apartments, a 75-unit project that opened in April 2011. The two phases will join together through common corridors, share extensive community facilities and operate as one seamless community.
“There is a large unmet need in this community for affordable senior housing,” stated Mercy Housing Northwest President Bill Rumpf. “MHNW has been helping create a safe and affordable community in the Tacoma Hilltop and we’re please to move forward with this second phase of construction at New Tacoma Apartments.”
Walsh Construction Co. is proud to partner with MHNW and SMR Architects to begin construction on this community-oriented project in Tacoma, Washington.
