Tumwater Real Estate Development Master Plan Project Overview
The Port of Olympia is embarking on a comprehensive planning process to guide future development within the New Market Industrial Campus (NMIC) and Tumwater Town Center property districts. This process will consider a range of actions for this area that will contribute to economic development and jobs creation in the Thurston County region.
Located in the City of Tumwater's emerging Town Center, this urban commercial corridor is home to many Washington state government agency headquarters, regional offices and education centers. The Port and the City collaborated in creating this district which includes frontage properties along Tumwater Boulevard and Capital Boulevard.
The vision for this district is a vibrant streetscape with pedestrian access to retail and professional services having a large employment base. Its location is intended to encourage growth toward a more concentrated, pedestrian-friendly and transit supportive area in Tumwater.
