4 Major Perks of Living in the Vintage Y Building in Downtown Tacoma 

Located right on Market Street in the heart of Downtown Tacoma, the Vintage Y building is conveniently the Theater District, offering the very best of urban living. This building’s historic charm is apparent as soon as you arrive—this must-see beauty still retains much of its original character, and you even have dreamy views of Mt. Rainier, the bay, and the city! 

In this particular Downtown Tacoma “City Living” Condo Series video, Regina and Madison take you on a tour of the Vintage Y and share exactly what makes this landmark so special:

For an even closer look at the Vintage Y, here are 4 major perks of calling this Tacoma treasure home: 

1. Own a piece of Tacoma history! 

The Vintage Y building first opened back in 1910 as the first chapter of the YMCA in the Northwest, and in 2004, the building was completed restored. For those who especially appreciate old world charm and the unique architecture of past eras, this building presents a rare opportunity. Enjoy having fully modern amenities while getting to bask in historic character—quality finishes and designer touches await at each turn. Details like stately columns, eye-catching trimwork, 13-foot ceilings with exquisite ceiling details, a large 6-story staircase, and breathtaking palladium windows are all in the mix, and sure to inspire pride in ownership each time you come and go. 

2. Live in a prime Downtown Tacoma location that’s close to everything. 

At 714 Market St Tacoma, WA 98402, you’re in an urban paradise, and everything from fine dining and popular bars to entertainment and museums are merely steps away. True to its name, this Theatre District location makes it easy to catch a show at The Pantages or The Rialto (they’re just a short block away), and The Grand Cinema is just a couple blocks away as well. Grab a bite to eat at Over the Moon Cafe or at the iconic Puget Sound Pizza, and enjoy a drink at Dystopian State Brewing Co. or The Mix after. You’re also just a few blocks from the new McMenamins Elks Temple, and dozens of other restaurants, shops, sights and attractions surround you—these are just a few of the many amenities that are a stone’s throw from home! 

Transit options are aplenty, too—bus lines pick up right along Market Street, and the Theatre District Station is only 0.3 miles from home. Hop on the TLink light rail streetcar here, and take it straight to the Tacoma Dome Station where you can grab a bus or the Sounder Train straight to Seattle. You’re also a short 3-minute drive to access Highway 705, which makes it easy to connect to Interstate-5 and beyond. 

3. Enjoy incredible building amenities. 

With the Vintage Y’s onsite amenities, you don’t have to leave the comfort of home to enjoy things like a gym/fitness center or sunny outdoor relaxation (there’s a rooftop patio!). You also get safe parking and a secure entrance for peace of mind.
