"The prediction of escalating housing prices has pushed the Tacoma Housing Authority to buy nearly seven acres in a first-of-its-kind purchase for the agency. The authority paid nearly $6 million for an assemblage of buildings north of 19th Street West and South Mildred Street called James Center North. One day, the agency hopes 300 to 500 housing units could be there."
