Ainsworth Vista

Ainsworth Vista, a 13-home development in South Tacoma, was completed in the spring of 2013

Located at S Ainsworth Ave and S 86th St in South Tacoma.

In March 2010, Tacoma/Pierce County Habitat for Humanity purchased a 1.74-acre lot in the south-end neighborhood of Tacoma with the intention of developing it into a 13-home project. Prior to Habitat’s purchase of the property, a dilapidated house sat on the bank-owned land, attracting vandalism and homeless encampments to an area that is residential in all directions.

Habitat for Humanity began developing the project in early 2011 and began construction on the first houses at Ainsworth Vista in the summer of 2011. Construction of all 13 homes wrapped up in June 2013.
