Tacoma's vision is to encourage revitalization of its urban core with new developments and the preservation of its historic buildings. A new light rail system, convention center, two major art museums and the expansion of the University of Washington at Tacoma significantly influence the direction of downtown Tacoma

While such growth and development currently impact the historical resources of the City of Tacoma, TBA West andTBA Architects, assist the City in establishing more efficient permit review and attractive incentives for re-use of historic buildings in accordance with a new downtown zoning regulations.
