Strategic Location Between Bases

Woodbrook has already been talked about as an industrial park that has the synergy for military contractors creating more military innovation and development.

Last year, the Port of Tacoma and City of Lakewood funded a study of Woodbrook’s redevelopment potential. Already 20 of 117 A. have been acquired for redevelopment by a single developer. The study recommends relocation of Woodbrook Middle School and the ASAP construction of the Cross-Base Highway segment from 146th St. SW to Fort Lewis. That could create up to 4,500 jobs and an assessed value of $184 million.

The Woodbrook Business Park Report is available here.
