Salishan - Past Present & Future
Quadrant Homes: Assessment of Diversity at Salishan and New Home Communities in Washington [PDF]
Fair Housing Center of Washington, 2007
Quadrant Homes was the homebuilder partner with Tacoma Housing Authority (THA) for most of the single-family homes in Phase I of the Salishan Redevelopment. In its marketing efforts, THA and Quadrant sought a racially diverse pool of potential purchasers for all homes in Phase I. In this report, the Fair Housing Center of Washington assessed the results of these efforts. As the report indicates, the efforts were quite successful. In recognition of these efforts and their success, the Center awarded THA its Housing Justice Award for 2008.

To make homes available to low-income families;
To help protect families from irresponsible or unsustainable purchases. (We note that this goal gained an additional pertinence as the nation’s mortgage market declined dramatically as an apparent result of overly aggressive marketing of unsustainable mortgages and unwise purchase decisions by home buyers.)
This report will also help THA adjust its efforts in Phase II of Salishan, which will have another 183 homes for sale. That effort, more than Phase I, will confront the full effect of the nation’s troubled mortgage market.
A Study of Salishan’s Purchase Market 2004-2015 [PDF]
ReMax Professionals, 2015
This report was commissioned by the Tacoma Housing Authority (THA), in an effort to better understand the real estate market dynamics and its effect upon a specific micro-market known as “Salishan”, which is located on the Eastside of Tacoma. THA’s request includes an analysis of this micro-market be completed and a detailed study of the sales data in this specific area over the period from January 2004 through August 2015. During this time period the Salishan neighborhood has undergone the most intense and dramatic market change in all of Pierce County. The data will show the rise of Salishan from a blighted urban neighborhood environment with little or no sales activity to a renewed and refreshed neighborhood of gentrified homes with the highest median sale price on the Eastside of Tacoma. The analysis will focus on:
The sales price overtime in Salishan from January 2004 – August 2015.
The rate of foreclosures during this same period in Salishan and the Eastside Tacoma Market.
A comparison of sales prices and dollar volume of total sales in Salishan to the overall Eastside Tacoma market
This report also addresses the current overall health of the real estate market in Salishan today and going forward.
