Tacoma condo description

Lodge in an upscale and art-filled condominium, located in the heart of the revitalized Tacoma Theater District. The Rowland Building is a completely renovated historic property that houses two upscale condos tastefully furnished with original artwork; a live/work space art gallery; and friendly bar and grill. Guests are welcomed to their stay in our luxury condos with a complimentary bottle of wine, pound of coffee, and chocolates.

Experience urban living at its finest that is within walking distance to the Theaters, the International Glass Museum; the Washington State History Museum; the Tacoma Art Museum; the Le May Car Museum; the YMCA; The University of Washington Tacoma Campus; and Antique Row.

Visit the Thursday Farmers Market (two blocks away May-October) and buy fresh produce, arts, and crafts; and dine at one of the five nearby popular restaurants (within one block of the condos).

This area is an ideal base from which to explore the nearby Puget Sound (located three blocks from the Thea Foss Waterway). Travel enthusiasts can visit, by car or ferry, sophisticated Seattle; eclectic Vashon Island; and beautiful Victoria, Canada.

Outdoor lovers can visit nearby Point Defiance Park, and marinas - Recreational opportunities abound with skiing and hiking at Crystal Mt.; Snoqualmie; and Mt. Baker (about an hour away). Nature devotees can visit Mt. Rainier; the Olympic National Rain Forest; and Mt. St. Helens, which recently celebrated the thirty-year anniversary of its historic eruption.

Why settle for the sterile atmosphere of a cramped hotel room when you can experience urban living with all the creature comforts in a spacious, intimate space of your own surrounded by original artwork!

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2000

                  About the owner: My name is Laura Hanan and I am an artist and I live and work in my family's 100-year-old historic building with my husband Marty, who is also an artist. Ron Patterson one of our returning guests (& his wife Charnley) generously married us in 2009! My family completely renovated our mixed-use building and built two beautiful identical high-end condos featuring custom cherry wood cabinetry, original brick walls, and refinished 100-year-old Doug Fir wood floors. Our original art is throughout the building and we have our studios and a frame shop located in the basement. We welcome our guests to tour our sometimes messy studios. We also invite visitors to play in our studios and create some art of their own with our help if they want.

                  Why the Owner Chose Tacoma:
                  We found this beautiful old building - a dusty gem - in the heart of downtown Tacoma - the Theater District. We saw the raw potential of the area and since purchasing and remodeling our building we are in the center of a lovely new restaurant row, which proudly includes our own bar and grill, 'The Office', downstairs in our building. We are honored that our building is also on the local register of historic buildings. A new Pacific Northwest heavy-hitter anchor tenant, McMenamins is being built less than two blocks away from our building and will feature a music venue, theatrical events, and a brew pub in the grand old historic Elks Building.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
                  We love to pamper our guests with condos that are furnished tastefully and include all original artwork. A complimentary bottle of wine, chocolates, and pound of fresh coffee, await our visitors. We live on site and are available to help out with restaurant suggestions and information about the wonderful local events and places to visit.
