About the Seaport
The Foss Waterway Seaport and the Foss Waterway Development Authority are partnering to create the Seaport as a permanent education and activity venue on the Tacoma waterfront.
The centerpiece of the renovation is a wheat transfer facility known as the Balfour Dock building, built in 1900. The warehouse and its now-defunct mate were built to accommodate square-rigged cargo ships that frequented the port during the early years of Tacoma’s history.
