Tacoma, Washington Condo Project Facing Foreclosure
The headline on the website for the Tacoma Esplenade condo project says "navigate a new life" but that life may be snagged up in foreclosure. The Tacoma News Tribune reports that the $80 million Tacoma, Washington waterfront condominium project is facing foreclosure by late August unless the developer can find new sources of funding. The project is a nine-story building with 162 units, just ten of which have been sold.None of the retail spaces have been rented. The project was part of a larger plan to revitalize the formerly industrial area with new housing and a hotel. The hotel never broke ground and that land is now for sale. The owners of the Esplenade have until August 21 to escape from foreclosure but it will be a challenge, partially because of the building's low occupancy rate which makes it hard to get funding.
