Rush Development has a good example of how quickly this change is happening. About a year ago, Rush finished Proctor Station in North Tacoma. It cost $31.5 million to develop, and all 151 units and 12,000 square feet of retail space are leased. Rush will break ground in mid-April on a similar project just a few blocks away, at 3910 N. 25th St. It has 10 fewer units and 8,800 square feet of retail, but the development cost will be $36 million.
By donating doors, cabinets, and appliances to Second Use, Rush Development and Rush Commercial diverted waste and supported affordable housing.
