Situated in Tacoma's bustling Brewery District, Rook Apartments stands as a brand-new 368-unit multifamily complex. Standing at 394,861 square feet and occupying nearly half a city block at 1502 Fawcett Avenue, this project was constructed by Rush Commercial Construction, developed by One Trent, and is managed by Blanton Turner.

Located a stone's throw from Tacoma's T Line Link Light Rail, the Greater Tacoma Convention Center, the University of Washington Tacoma campus, and Tacoma's theater district, Rook Apartments comprises two elegant eight-story multifamily residential towers. With a diverse range of living options to cater to various urban lifestyles and budgets, the complex offers 56 two-bedroom units, 130 one-bedroom units, 143 open one-bedroom units, and 39 studio units, with prices ranging from $1,325 to $3,750 per month. Notably, as the first multifamily development in the Brewery District opportunity zone to qualify for Tacoma's 12-year Multifamily Tax Exemption Incentive (MFTE), Rook Apartments proudly includes 74 affordable units to benefit the local community.

Greg Jasper, Senior Project Manager, Rush Commercial Construction shares, “A significant project goal was to expand quality multifamily and affordable housing opportunities in Tacoma’s thriving downtown. We’re thrilled with the project outcome—Rook Apartments brings quality housing to the community and was delivered ahead of schedule and under budget with a great business partner, One Trent.”

Designed by the talented team at Studio19 Architects, the aesthetic of Rook Apartments pays homage to Tacoma's esteemed timber industry legacy. The fusion of reclaimed wood, industrial concrete, and robust steel beams seamlessly intertwine with the sleek matte black accents, stainless steel appliances, and elegant quartz countertops that distinguish residence interiors.

Two beautifully appointed rooftop terraces offer expansive views of Commencement Bay and Mount Rainier, a rooftop bar, an outdoor kitchen cabana, and lounge spaces for residents to enjoy and gather. Other amenities include BBQ stations, fire pits, a virtual golf swing suite, co-working areas, a state-of-the-art fitness room, a pampering pet spa, and convenient below-ground parking equipped with exclusive EV charging stations.

“At One Trent, we’re committed to delivering high quality residential projects that benefit communities—and it’s gratifying to see our hard work across the Puget Sound come to fruition,” said One Trent Principal Trent Mummery. “In Tacoma, Rook will bring its residents closer to where they work, visit, go to school and socialize—these are the opportunities we enjoy creating for the individuals and families who call Rook home.” 

Leasing at Rook Apartments has commenced and move-in ready units are available now.
