When you think about city living, it’s hard to imagine a location more centered than The Roberson. Walk a few hundred yards to the south, and you’ll be on the steps of Tacoma’s jewel box theaters; The Pantages and the Rialto, where Tacoma Opera, Tacoma Symphony Orchestra and Northwest Sinfonietta share the stages with national touring productions and local arts extravaganza. Next door is Theatre on the Square, Tacoma’s leading contemporary playhouse.
Directly to the north is The Grand Cinema, Tacoma’s beloved independent movie theater, where features include foreign films, art house hits and the best popcorn in the city.
If your interests lie farther afield, Tacoma’s LINK light rail stop is only blocks away. Freeway access is close by as well, for those days when the car is calling.
Community events like ArtWalk and the Downtown Farmer’s Market give your calendar more options than ever. The wonderful shops of Opera Alley, delicious ethnic and gourmet restaurants, hip coffee houses, art galleries and working studios, and neighborhood parks fill in the rest of the spaces, place you in the center of Tacoma’s creative community. It’s good to be in the center. That’s where your home is.
Ledger Square was the historic gathering place for people waiting in front of the Tacoma News Tribune & Ledger Building for results of major events such as elections and sporting events. As the centerpiece of the St. Helens Neighborhood L.I.D., Ledger Square is once again serving as a prominent public space. A dramatic new streetscape, including new streets, sidewalks, ornamental street lighting and landscaping provides a wonderful urban setting for The Roberson on Ledger Square.
