The Live Downtown program helps Downtown Tacoma employees live near their workplace. Live Downtown has a package of incentives for those interested in owning or renting, as long as it’s in downtown Tacoma.
As an employer there’s no cost to participate. Save on parking costs, increase employee recruitment and retention by encouraging employees to enjoy a commitment to downtown and your business!
Live Downtown is an opportunity to boost your employee benefits package, improve the neighborhood around your business, lessen the ecological impacts of employee commutes, and save your employees money on housing and transportation.
“The Broadway Center is committed to the renaissance of Downtown Tacoma. We’re thrilled with how easy and cost-free it’s been to participate in the Live Downtown Program. Our staff can now realize the dream of home ownership while living close to the Theater District.” -David Fischer, Executive Director, Broadway Center for the Performing Arts
