New plans for downtown Puyallup prioritize apartments and condominiums near the Sounder Station for a 45-minute commute into Seattle.
The city hopes by focusing on multi-family affordable housing that more retail, coffee shops and businesses will follow. The bulk of planned development is less than a 10-minute walk to the train station.
“Becoming a bedroom community is not something we are shying away from,” acting city manager Steve Kirklie said recently.
A 500-stall parking garage for Sounder commuters is expected to draw more residents, and Puyallup needs housing to support the growth, Kirklie said. Downtown Puyallup’s population is expected to increase by 9,000 in 10 years.
