5 Top Features of Tacoma’s Pacific Tower Condo Building 

Perched right above the City of Destiny and showcasing some of the best views in town, the Pacific Tower condo building presents a thoroughly captivating opportunity. Not only are you in a prime location, but top-notch building amenities offer a “lock and go” lifestyle that promises ease, efficiency, and the ideal situation that enables you to live life to its fullest! 

Regina Madiera-Gorden and Madison Lord share exactly what they love about Pacific Tower in this Downtown Tacoma “City Living” Condo Series video:

Keep reading for an in-depth look at what makes Pacific Tower so special: 

1. Dream location for commuters. 

At 3201 Pacific Ave Tacoma, WA 98418, the Pacific Tower is just south of Downtown Tacoma and right around the corner from the Lincoln District. Interstate-5 is just a couple minutes from home, making it easy to hop on and off the freeway. If taking the train is more your style, the Sounder Train Station at the Tacoma Dome is less than 1 mile away, ensuring it’s a breeze to hop on the train (or a bus!) all the way to Seattle.

2. Quick and easy access to some of Tacoma’s best amenities.

Bus lines run right along Pacific Ave, and you can grab the bus (there’s a bus stop just about a block away) and head straight into Downtown Tacoma. Here you can catch the latest exhibit at the Tacoma Art Museum (or one of the other popular museums downtown), enjoy no-hassle access to entertainment (see the latest show at the Pantages), and have a fun night out on the town (there’s dozens of popular restaurants and bars easily within reach!). 

The Lincoln District also offers its own fair share of attractions—run errands at Safeway or one of the many other local grocery stores, and enjoy cuisine from around the world. Of course, you can always just head around the corner to indulge in a night out at Stanley and Seafort’s! 

3. Iconic Tacoma views await! 

The Pacific Tower has 12 floors, and a large variety of views are available depending on the unit. Views of Thea Foss Waterway, Port of Tacoma (the lights are absolutely stunning at night), the Tacoma Dome, the LeMay Car Museum, and the Puget Sound are all in the mix. Our latest listing boasts expansive views of it all—whether you’re whipping up dinner in the kitchen, visiting with guests in the dining area, or relaxing in the living room, you have a memorable view that stretches on into the distance. 

4. Fantastic building amenities promise easy living. 

The Pacific Tower offers its residents a concierge lobby, gym access, a clubhouse (you can even rent it for parties), garbage services, secure parking, and storage. It’s all included in the HOA fee (and the cost depends on the unit you’re in). 

5. A stylish blend of classic style and modern design offer a timeless aesthetic. 

Built in 2002, the Pacific Tower is a traditional industrial building made of metal and steel. It was developed by Oscar Hokold, one of the “godfathers” of Tacoma development and affectionately referred to as King Oscar. This newer building offers residents modern amenities and a classic aesthetic that’s sure to stand the test of time. In our latest listing here, a fabulous lifestyle awaits. Featuring a 1,281-square-foot layout, this condo includes 2 bedrooms (a master suite plus a versatile 2nd bedroom), 1.75 baths, a newer kitchen with a breakfast bar, and an open-concept living area with a wall of windows. Located at 3201 Pacific Ave Unit 407 Tacoma, WA 98418, this condo is listed for $275,000.

An invitation to RESET! A renewing experience with the YMCA.

Many of you know that part of my life is the YMCA.  After being a trainer/instructor at the Morgan Family branch for over 20 years, last year was the first time that I got the timely information about “The Plunge.” This fun community event includes a walk, bike or run (3 different groups and start times based on your level) from the YMCA down to Owens Beach.  At the end, you’ll find music, praise, and snacks! Ready to reset with me yet?




Once all groups arrive; we gather, hold hands, and plunge THREE (yes, three) times into the Puget Sound.  One for Mind, Body, and Spirit (each YMCA/Crest Values).  I am making a point to do this again on Friday, September 7th (the early walking group leaves at 5:45 AM) as I found it exhilarating and powerful.

Please join me for this transformational reset for Fall with a re-commitment to values and new beginnings!  (There is a bus return trip back to the Y).  ALSO, if you don’t know – the Y is waiving the joining fee now through September 17th.  If you’d like ANY information, please call or text me at 253-381-6685 or PM me on our business FB page: www.facebook.com/rmrealtorwpp.


Check out the YMCA of Pierce County and Morgan Family YMCA for more details!

Discover Beautiful Titlow Beach in Tacoma

Located in the West Slope area of Tacoma, the lovely Titlow Beach community awaits! In 1911, the now Lodge/Chalet-style building was a grand summer hotel destination. With views of Puget Sound, Fox Island, the Narrows Bridges, and the Olympic Mountains, it is a place of stunning beauty and serene nature.

When Aaron Titlow died in 1923, the original hotel was closed and acquired by Tacoma Parks. A few decades later, it underwent a restoration process in which the top two floors were removed. Ever since 1974, the building has been a part of the community and open to the public.


Explore the Beach

Over the years, Titlow Beach has become a favorite destination for locals and visitors alike. Home to a swimming area, picnic zone, community center, spray park, walking trails, duck pond, children’s playset and sports fields, the dynamic community hub is popular with people of all ages! There’s even a signature restaurant on the beach called The Beach Tavern, a spot known for its delicious burgers and jojos. Steamers is another nearby eatery; this Tacoma establishment is known for its fabulous fish and chips and amazing waterfront views! The nearby ice cream shop offers up the perfect spot for enjoying a cone on a sunny day.

Living Near Titlow Beach

Most homes in the area were constructed between the 1950s and 70s, but in 2014, Quadrant Homes started developing a small group of quality, modern homes. Homeowner Jerry Frazier bought one of these beautiful brand new homes last year: “I love the [proximity] to the water and views! It is easy to commute to work, yet I feel like I’m on vacation when I arrive home.”


There’s still a chance for you to claim your spot on Titlow Beach! The first resale has just been listed, and it’s packed with upgrades and barely lived in. Take a moment to explore this gorgeous 3-bedroom, 2.5-bath home here.
