The Rainier Court project is a mixed-use development at approximately 3700 Rainier Avenue South, just north of the Rainier Valley Square shopping center. The goal of the project is to reclaim 7 acres of underutilized land and construct a marquee development that symbolizes progress and provides quality commercial space, affordable housing, pedestrian activity, and density for this community. The first two phases were completed in 2005 (for additional information, see The Dakota and Courtland Place). Columbia Gardens, the third phase of this four-phase project, was recently completed in August, 2014.
