Tacoma Financial Center Undergoes Class A Remake

Another office complex is changing with the post-pandemic times as the 15-story Tacoma Financial Center in downtown Tacoma, WA is being transformed into Tacoma Centre, a Class A building optimized for a culture of work/life balance. The owner of the property, MJR Development is planning the transformation and Kidder Mathews’ Will Frame, Drew Frame and Ben Norbe are managing the leasing.

“Post-pandemic, workers want more than just office space — they want a work environment that can be integrated with their lifestyle,” said MJR’s Mike Raskin. “Smart company leaders will establish offices in building were employees want to be.”

Tacoma Centre will include a café and bar, lounge areas, conference rooms and a fitness center. The interior designs, focused on common areas, will use natural materials, tall windows and expansive views. The multi-million dollar renovation is scheduled for completion in summer 2023. The building will remain open to tenants during construction.
